Adult MHFA Refresher Half-Day Course

This course is designed to support Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions to maintain their skills and be able to share their experience as a MHFA or Champion. This is required to renew delegates certification within 3 years of completing their MHFA or Champions course. 

In addition to the course, you will now 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.

The 4 hour refresher course will support your Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions by:

  • Renewing their skills 

  • Updating their knowledge of mental health supports 

  • Giving them the chance to practice applying the Mental Health First Aid action plan 


Enabling your Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions to refresh their skills, the same way your physical first aiders do, is a great way to demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to treating mental health and physical health equally.


Investing in the course will give you the confidence that your Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions are performing their role safely and effectively.

What to expect:

  • 4 hour session

  • Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities


£150 per person. In-house group training also available

How often should MHFA England skills be refreshed?

We recommend that Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions attend a Refresher course every 3 years. Just like physical first aid, updating skills and knowledge allows people to perform this vital role confidently and safely. 


We limit numbers to 25 people per course so that we can keep people safe and supported while they learn.  

Want to develop your expertise as an MHFAider®?

By keeping your mental health knowledge up to date with the MHFA Refresher, you’ll be eligible to take our internationally recognised MHFAider® qualification.
