Our Adult Mental Health First Aid England training is going virtual from June!

Since the start of lockdown, Mental Health First Aid England have been working hard to design a virtual, online version of their 2 day adult training. We are pleased to announce that this is now possible and Chrissy Watt our Student Wellbeing & Resilience Manager will be approved to deliver the course from June.

The course will cover the same content as the face to face version and offers a blend of direct and self-learning in order to ensure you get the same knowledge and experience. The charge for the course remains the same but we will continue to subsidise the recommended cost (£300) so you only pay £30

Please see below for more information about the course and, if you would like to register your interest and be emailed as soon as dates for the training are set, you can login and complete our short waiting list survey at the bottom of this page.
