Mental Health First Aid Refresher Course
In line with the requirements for physical first aid, we recommend that people who have taken a Mental Health First Aid England course refresh their skills and knowledge annually.
MHFA Refresher Course
Our mental health refresher course will allow delegates to keep the following knowledge current:
- Awareness of mental health support
- Mental health and what influences it
- How to apply the Mental Health First Aid action plan
It also provides a chance to get up-to-date on the latest evidence base for mental health issues and support which is rapidly moving forwards.
Why take the refresher course?
If you are a Mental Health First Aider or MHFA Champion you have skills for life that support you and the people around you.
We believe that mental health should be treated equally to physical health – and just like physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid training should be kept up to date.
The four hour Adult MHFA Refresher course will empower you to:
- Keep your awareness of mental health supports current
- Update your knowledge of mental health and what influences it
- Practice applying the Mental Health First Aid action plan
- Four hour face-to-face course
Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities.
How often should MHFA England skills be refreshed?
Just like physical first aid, we recommend that Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions attend a Refresher course every three years.
If it’s time to refresh your skills, book onto an Adult MHFA Refresher course now and feel confident that you are performing your vital role safely.
How much will it cost?
We value this course at £125 per person. Delegates will receive a manual and an ALGEE action card.
Maximum number of delegates per course is 25.
