What are the benefits of Mental Health First Aid courses?

Mental Health First Aid courses in Milton Keynes, and online across England

Research tells us that Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training can help businesses save money from absenteeism, presenteeism, and staff turnover costs.  Find out more about why you should invest in MHFA.

You also have a legal responsibility. In November 2018, the Health and Safety Executive amended their first aid needs assessment to include Mental Health First Aid.


In 2018/19, stress, depression or anxiety were responsible for 44% of all cases of work-related ill health and for 54% of all working days lost due to health issues in GB.

Our friendly courses led by Dr A.J. Yates will give you or your staff the confidence and skills to increase wellbeing and reduce mental health problems in the workplace.

Reducing stigma

Mental Health First Aid also empowers people to care for themselves and others.  By reducing stigma through greater understanding, the courses designed by MHFA England break down barriers to the support that people may need to stay well, recover, or manage their symptoms – to thrive in learning, work and life.  View MHFA England’s vision and mission.
