MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID QUALIFICATIONS
The MHFA course is the gold standard, internationally recognised training in Mental Health First Aid. It’s great because yes, you’ll learn about the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions, but you’ll also come out with the skills – and confidence – to provide safe and effective support to anyone in your life who is struggling. Just like physical first aid, you’ll have the skills to transform, or even save, a life. At present I am offering two editions of these courses: one set for UK individuals/employees/companies, and one set tailored specifically for humanitarians/those working in the aid sector. All my courses offer certification, either through MHFA England or the qualification provided by the training company I’m working through. Click on each course for details of certification.

MENTAL HEALTH TRAINING FOR AID WORKERS
Mental Health First Aider Qualification: Aid Worker edition

There are lots of stress management, mental health etc trainings out there – but very few are designed specifically for aid workers, and even fewer of those are open to individuals. My courses are built around core MHFA England training described above – read more here - but with additional material drawing on my frontline experience as a humanitarian responder. In addition to the core MHFA qualification (more here), we’ll tackle trauma, PTS, PTSD, vicarious trauma, chronic stress, burnout, and providing remote support. Working with peers, you’ll come out with internationally recognised MHFA certification, but also the bespoke practical knowledge you’ll need to tackle the particular challenges in our sector.
