A trained Mental Health First Aider in your workplace can start productive conversations about mental health, be a role model for how to manage mental health, promote greater understanding of the importance of mental health, and play a significant part in ending stigma and discrimination around mental health in the workplace.

Upon completing the course, students will become certified mental health first aiders in the workplace and can help colleagues with a mental health issue receive the support they need to recover or manage their symptoms. Both public courses and workplace training are available.

The British Safety Council offers both live online delivery and classroom courses at our London training centre. Alternatively, our expert tutors can visit your workplace and deliver this two-day course to groups of up to 16 employees.

Upon completion of the two-day course you will receive a Mental Health First Aid certificate from MHFA England.
