Mental Health First Aid Refresher


The 4-hour refresher course gives you the chance to renew your Mental Health First Aid skills and update your knowledge of mental health support. It also gives a further 3 years of access to the MHFAider® support and benefits.

Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities.

Who needs this qualification?

This course is available to those who have previously completed a Mental Health First Aid course.

Why is this training important?

In the same way we refresh physical first aid qualifications, Mental Health First Aid training should also be kept up to date. Updating skills and knowledge allows learners to continue to perform a Mental Health First Aider role confidently and safely. It’s also a great way to demonstrate your organisation’s pledge to treat mental health and physical health equally.
