There are many ways business invests in their people, and one is investing in Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) the learning and impact is not only on the participants but also their teams and the wider company by: -​

By offering the course in-house you are valuing the company’s wellbeing and the mental health of every staff member. The course develops the skills and confidence to create a positive mental health culture in the workplace.


We recommend allowing colleagues to come forward and volunteer for the role as opposed to appointing or nominating, it’s an important role and the motivation and interest must be there. You can have 8 to 16 attend the course and it offers: -

  7. A safe space building on knowledge and skills, raising awareness and empathy.

Once the course is completed think carefully about how you will support the mental health first aiders and also any wellbeing leads as the role embeds and new learning and situations arise. We offer facilitated practitioner meetings post-qualifying to bring all MHFAiders and wellbeing leads together allowing space to embed learning, mutual support, develop expertise and share best practice.
