Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an accredited training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue. MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.

This course is ideal for those who would like to become an MHFAider® to:

  • Gain the knowledge and skills to spot signs of people experiencing poor mental health
  • Be confident starting a conversation and signpost a person to appropriate support

Everyone who completes the course will receive:

    • A hard copied workbook to support learning throughout the course
    • A digital manual to refer to whenever you need it, after completing the course
    • A wallet sized reference card with the Mental Health First Aid action plan
    • A digital MHFA® certificate
    • Access to the MHFA Support App® for 3 years
    • Access to ongoing learning opportunities, resources and exclusive events
    • MHFAider® logo to add to your email signature
    • Access to Racing’s Support Line for support and advice
    • The opportunity to be part of the largest MHFA® community in England

Once you complete the Mental Health First Aid course, you can have the opportunity (at an extra cost) to test your knowledge and build your confidence in your role as a MHFA® with the internationally recognised MHFAider® qualification – RSPG Level 3 Award in Mental Health First Aid.

The maximum number of people per course is 16. The course costs £88 per person (this course, usually £325, is subsidised by Racing Welfare).

Please note, this course is only available to people working in the British horseracing and Thoroughbred breeding industries.
