Would you know how to help in the moment?

Becoming a Mental Health First Aider (MHFAider) is not just about learning to support others; it’s about joining a movement towards a more understanding and supportive society. Here are some compelling advantages of becoming an MHFAider:

Empowerment Through Knowledge

MHFAiders are equipped with the knowledge to recognise signs of mental distress and the skills to offer initial support. 

Access to Resources

Upon completion of the MHFA course, individuals gain access to the MHFAider Support App® and Online Learning Hub for three years, providing a wealth of resources for ongoing learning and support.

Building Supportive Communities

MHFAiders play a crucial role in building supportive communities and healthy workplace cultures. They encourage open conversations about mental health, reducing stigma and promoting early intervention.

Professional Recognition

As an MHFAider, you can be recognised as a Mental Health First Aid Officer in your workplace, demonstrating your commitment to the well-being of your colleagues.

Continuous Learning and Support

The journey of an MHFAider doesn’t end with certification. The role includes continuous learning opportunities and access to a dedicated text service provided by Shout, ensuring MHFAiders are always prepared to offer help.


By becoming an MHFAider, you’re not just gaining a certificate; you’re becoming part of a larger community dedicated to making a difference in mental health.  

So, would you know how to help in the moment? As an MHFAider, the answer is a resounding “Yes.”
