MHFAE Mental Health training available face-to-face once again

Regional, not-for-profit training organisation Training For Life has announced that official communication has now been received from Mental Health First Aid England (MHFAE), to confirm that all MHFAE training courses can now, once more, be delivered by its official instructors in person.  This announcement covers all YOUTH and ADULT courses.

An MHFAE spokesperson confirmed “Government guidance now states that meetings of up to 30 people are allowed and so with appropriate risk assessment and social distancing, the delivery of face to face training is once again possible by our instructors”.

Training For Life has accredited instructors delivering mental health training regionally, via Mental Health First Aid England – the only accredited instructor training organisation in England.  Courses include the ½-day ‘Aware’ course; designed to provide delegates with an introduction to mental health, the 1-day ‘Champion’ course; which gives a more thorough understanding of self and others mental health and the 2-day ‘Mental Health First Aid’ course; which is a very detailed look at mental health and a course where graduation from the 2-days results in certification as a Mental Health First Aider.

“We are delighted to be back in the training room again” said Training For Life’s Development Director Richard Stewart.  “We continue to take all precautions necessary to ensure the safety of our delegates, both from an emotional safeguarding point of view and on the post-lockdown side”.
