New MHFA England refresher courses launched

Working Well will be launching the new half-day MHFA refresher training for all participants of two-day and one-day MHFA England courses.  It is suggested that all participants attend this session every three years.

The MHFA England training is central to a workplace wellbeing strategy and continued organisational success.  By investing in this high quality, evidence-based training, you will give your employees the skills to manage mental health at work.

The four-hour refresher course will support and empower your Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions (two-day and one-day training) by:

  • renewing their skills
  • updating their knowledge of mental health supports
  • giving them the chance to practice applying the Mental Health First Aid action plan.

Enabling your Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions to refresh their skills, the same way your physical first aiders do, is a great way to demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to treating mental health and physical health equally. Investing in the course will give you the confidence that your Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions are performing their roles safely and effectively.
