Further dates have now been confirmed for two more Mental Health First Aider (MHFA) training courses across 9th & 10th March as well as 19th & 20th April.

The response to our offer of an accredited two-day Mental Health First Aid training course has been excellent so far and while not all applicants will be guaranteed a spot at these sessions, a waiting list is in operation and further courses will be booked in throughout the year ahead.

All colleagues are invited to express their interest in joining us on a MHFA course by completing our form. To maximise attendance, colleagues are asked to first obtain preliminary agreement from their line manager before submitting the form.

A refresher course, taking place on 23rd March for First Aiders who completed their training more than three years ago, has also been booked in. To register your interest in this course, please email [email protected].
