Online Mental Health First Aid Course

What is the online Mental Health First Aid Course?

The Mental Health Fist Aid course is a practical skills and awareness course designed to equip learners with the skills and confidence to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues, and provide support and signposting to self-help, or professional services.

This new online version of the course delivers the same evidence-based learning outcomes of the popular ‘face-to-face’ Adult MHFA Two Day course in an accessible and flexible online format. The course is structured around a blend of individual learning and live sessions. These are all conducted via a new Online Learning Hub called ENABLEY, which is an integrated learning platform. Learners who complete the course will be certified as Mental Health First Aiders and will receive an e-certificate on completion of the course.

Currently there are a limited number of spaces available which will be booked on a first come first served basis, however, please rest assured we are in the process of making provisions to release further dates very soon!

The course is available to all Health and Social Care staff across the LLR System.
