CoEJ Launches the First Online Adult Mental Health First Aider Workshop 

What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised accredited training course (valued at £300 per person).

This course teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. MHFA England training won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.
