This course is available as either an online or face-to-face training session.
If you are a Mental Health First Aider® you have skills for life that support you and the people around you.
We believe that mental health should be treated equally to physical health – and just like physical first aid, Mental Health First Aider® training should be kept up-to-date.
In addition to updating your MHFAider® skills, completing this Refresher course gives you a further:
Three years access to the MHFAider Support App® with 24/7 digital support
Access to exclusive resources, ongoing learning opportunities, and the benefit of joining England’s largest community of trained MHFAiders®
The four hour MHFAider® Refresher course will empower you to:
Keep your awareness of mental health supports current
Update your knowledge of mental health and what influences it
Practice applying the Mental Health First Aid action plan
Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities. Numbers are limited to 25 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn
**Please note that the MHFA Refresher is only for people who have completed an Adult (2 day) Mental Health First Aider® course.**
How often should MHFAider® skills be refreshed?
Just like physical first aid, we recommend that Mental Health First Aiders® attend a Refresher course every three years. If it's time to refresh your skills, book onto a Manx Minds MHFAider® Refresher course now and feel confident that you are performing your vital role safely.
MHFAider® training doesn't stop when the course comes to an end. Completing the Refresher course means you will have an additional 3 years access to the MHFA App. Via the app, MHFA England offers continuous support for MHFAiders®, well beyond your initial certification, or Refresher, to ensure you can continue to lead impactful MHFA interventions.
The MHFAider Support App® provides automatic 24/7 digital support. From there, you'll find exclusive resources, ongoing learning opportunities to grow your confidence, and gain the benefit of joining England’s largest community of trained MHFAiders®.
This support will give you an opportunity to:
Keep your learning alive
Quickly reference something
Connect you with a group of people improving the mental health of the nation
