How much will it cost me?

What will I learn?

Learning takes place across four manageable sessions. Through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions, each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan.

Everyone who completes the course gets:

  • A manual to refer to whenever you need it

  • A certificate of attendance to say you are a Mental Health First Aider.
