All of our MHFA England packages are delivered by one of our accredited, MHFA England registered trainers

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Mental ill health can strike at any time and can affect people from all walks of life.

Although things are improving, stigma still exists around mental ill health. As a society, we don't tend to know how to take care of our mental health like we do our physical health. This means that people may not know how to support a friend, family member, colleague or employee experiencing a mental health issue, or where to go for support with their own mental health.


Grounded in research and rigorously tested, These MHFA England Courses are developed with input from clinical experts and those with lived experience of mental health issues. Research and evaluation shows that MHFA England courses make a lasting difference in people’s knowledge and confidence around mental health.
