Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England is a Community Interest Company (CIC) that delivers a range of mental health courses in communities across the country.
MHFA is an educational course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help a person who may be experiencing a mental health issue. In the same way as we learn physical first aid, MHFA teaches you how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health.
MHFA England provides mental health awareness and skills training to a wide variety of communities, including schools, universities, the armed forces community, businesses and the public sector. Training is facilitated through its in-house consultancy team and national network of over 1,800 instructors.
MHFA England is on a mission to train one in ten of the adult population in England in MHFA skills – because we all have mental health. Mental health education empowers people to care for themselves and others. By reducing stigma through understanding, the organisation hopes to break down barriers to the support that people may need to stay well, recover, or manage their symptoms – to thrive in learning, work and life.
MHFA England’s overall vision is to normalise society's attitudes and behaviours around mental health, by developing the skills we need to look after our own and others' wellbeing.
