About MHFA

We offer the following three courses from Mental Health First Aid England for people living or working in Bradford district. Please see the information below to find out more about each course.

For organisations we recommend training key staff members to become Mental Health First Aiders (Adult Mental Health First Aid Course), further staff to be trained as Adult MHFA Champions (Adult Mental Health First Aid Champion) and all staff to become Mental Health Aware (Adult Mental Health Aware (MHFA).

Due to the nature of the training, participants must have access to a camera and microphone for online training. If you would like any further help to decide which courses are most suitable please contact us at: learning@mylivingwell.co.uk

To ensure the best learning experience, we recommend accessing the course using a laptop rather than phone/tablet/iPad.  If this is a problem, please do get in touch so that we can support you.
