We offer accredited Mental Health First Aid training, delivered in-house to your employees.
This course provides delegates with in-depth training on how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions, how to assist an individual in crisis, guidance on empathic listening, effective signposting to support and follow-on resources for you as a MHFAider®.
Training your employees in Mental Health First Aid is a clear commitment to wellbeing within the workplace. More than ever before, it is crucial that employers value mental health as highly as physical health and put steps in place to equip your employees with the skills they need.
We offer both the two-day MHFA course and the half-day MHFA Aware courses, both fully licensed by MHFA England. All trainers employed by Start Within have completed the MHFA England Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society of Public Health and courses can be delivered either face-to-face or online.
Train as a Mental Health First Aider (MHFAider®) and receive three years of certification, plus access to ongoing benefits.
This course is ideal for individuals who would like to become an MHFAider® to gain the knowledge and skills to spot signs of people experiencing poor mental health, be confident to start a conversation and signpost a person to appropriate support.
In addition to the course, you will become part of the largest MHFAider® community in England, gaining access to resources, ongoing learning and 24/7 digital support through our MHFAider Support App®, to give you the tools and knowledge you need to carry out the role effectively and confidently, whether that be in your workplace, a volunteer role, or in the community.

Everyone who completes the course gets:
"Excellent experience from start to finish. Mike is a smart and empathetic instructor with a wealth of experience and knowledge which he shares in such an accessible and people-centric manner. He makes everyone feel 100% included and valued in their experiences and opinions and creates a very safe space for all the attendees to learn and share if they are willing to do so. I can’t recommend Start Within enough. One of the best things I have done in ages was attend this course."
