Mental Health First Aid Refresher Course

The Mental Health First Aid Refresher Course ensures that mental health first aiders and responders keep their skills fresh and maintain their confidence to perform their roles effectively.

We recently updated the topics covered in this course, shifting the focus from the impact of Covid-19 to the impact of personal situations and how to support someone effectively.

Mental Health First Aid Refresher Training Overview

The course will use workplace case studies to outline how personal situations can impact individuals and the potential signs of someone experiencing mental ill health. The role of the employer and the mental health first aider will also be explored.
