MHFA Refresher

Keep your knowledge up to date with the MHFA England Mental Health First Aid Refresher Course. Recommended every three years.

What is this course about?

A MHFA (Mental Health First Aid) refresher training course is designed to update and renew the skills of individuals who have previously completed a Mental Health First Aid training. We teach the best practices in mental health support, reinforcing the knowledge on how to offer help to someone experiencing a mental health problem or crisis.

It ensures that Mental Health First Aiders keep their skills up to date, with a focus on practical strategies for providing support and understanding new developments in mental health care.

The four-hour course gives you the chance to:  

  • Renew skills previously learnt in Mental Health First Aid training
  • Update your knowledge of mental health support
  • Practice applying the Mental Health First Aid action plan

Who is this course for?

Just like physical first aid, MHFAiders® should attend a Refresher course every three years.
