What's included in the 2 day training course?

MHFA England Instructor Logo

The MHFA England’s Two Day Adult Mental Health First Aider course equips delegates with a nationally recognised certificate. Delivered and certified by a licensed MHFA England associate Instructor.  MHFA England is the only provider of licensed Mental Health First Aid Instructor Training accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health.  Certification recognised in the NHS and state schools, for example.

Printed materials are supplied and delivered directly to your address. Specifically: a manual and workbook necessary for the course, and excellent practical resources to retain and refer to when helping others.

Mental Health First Aid Training Course Attendees

The two days of live delivery uses MHFA England’s platform (Enabley). It is very similar to TEAMS or Zoom, but delegates can be assured no previous knowledge of any platform is necessary. Instructors provide support before and after the live sessions to ensure a positive experience. Both days include input from the Instructor, referral to MHFA England’s manual, video, whole group discussion, small group discussions and activities. All designed to increase knowledge, awareness and confidence as a mental health first aider. There is no academic pass mark; delegates are encouraged to participate as much as possible, but their welfare is paramount. The course can be challenging, so all delegates are able to opt out of any activity at any time.

How much does the course cost?

MHFA England markets the Two Day Adult Mental Health First Aider course at £300 per delegate. However, I am able to offer this nationally recognised certification at very competitive rates:

Online/remote pricing:
  • £225 per delegate
  • £175 per second, and subsequent, delegates booking together
  • £1450 for 8 delegates / group booking (workplace or group)
Onsite/classroom pricing:
  • £275 per delegate
  • £225 per second, and subsequent, delegates booking together
  • Reductions and venue costs for groups available on request

What's the format of the course?

All materials are covered in the live training sessions. Both days are approximately 9am-5pm. Alternative delivery schedules are available on request.

What people say about our courses


"Graham was absolutely amazing! I cannot give enough credit for his teaching style, patience and is just overall a decent guy! - I will be advising ANYONE who needs it to go with Graham and learn more about mental health!"

Adult MHFA - 2 Day Classroom Participant

"For someone with little exposure to ill mental health or for someone that wants structure and framework around the best way to manage a first aid event the course is great. I feel much more prepared to act in a professional 'correct' way. It's a lot to cover in two days so I am pleased to have the manual as additional support and information."

Adult MHFA - 2 Day Online Course Participant

"The course was extremely well delivered, interactive and engaging. Although the content covered was in depth and sensitive, all topics were approached with the utmost care and consideration."

Adult MHFA - 2 Day Classroom Participant

"Graham made the course both informative and enjoyable. The subject matter makes is not the easiest material to teach. They supported us as a group and as individuals. My knowledge and confidence to approach a person with a mental health condition has increased enormously. Thanks for a great course."

Adult MHFA - 2 Day Classroom Participant

"The course was helpful and informative. I felt well equipped to deal with the course contents thanks to the pre learning support, videos and activities prior to the two day course. The two course helped to consolidate my knowledge and understanding and confidence through group discussions and extra case studies/supportive activities."
