The COVID-19 Pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on our world – and our mental health. Looking after ourselves and eachother is vital right now, and will continue to be even more important when it is over as people come to terms with bereavements, anxiety, and post traumatic effects.
Face to face training is not currently possible given the need for social distancing. As this is being gradually relaxed I will review the situation periodically but I am not going to be running any face to face courses until I am convinced it is safe for myself and my delegates. I will also be watching closely the steer taken by MHFA England who are currently not allowing any instructors to advertise face to face training on their site, or running any themselves.
However, I am delighted to now be able to offer Online options – Online Mental Health First Aid, and the half day Mental Health Aware and MHFA Refresher courses.
These are delivered either via the MHFA England Online Learning Hub, or via Zoom, and offer the same learning outcomes as the face to face courses, and have many merits, such as lack of travel and subsistence costs – which apply even in normal times.
Other non-branded options may become available in due course.
All of my courses are offered at a discount on the full MHFA England RRP – though you are welcome to pay this if you are able and wish to support me to be able to offer lower rates and free places to make the course more accessible to those in different circumstances. I also offer discounts for Charities and Benefit Recipients – and occasional Special Offers. These are outlined below.
If you would still prefer face to face training – now is the time to grab yourself a saving by buying and advance purchase “voucher” – which you can redeem to book on a course when they return.
Can’t pay right now? Express your interest in a place on a course and receive a discount code to use later – email: email@example.com quoting “Advance Interest” in the Subject line.

Donations / Sponsorship
I am always mindful that there are people who will benefit from MHFA training who find it difficult to access. When I can, I make free places available, at cost to myself for materials and room bookings. If you would like to make a donation which will enable me to do this more often, please do so here (click here for suggested amounts – but anything you wish to contribute with reference “DONATION” will go towards this purpose)
If you have any questions please do get in touch – I can invoice you if you prefer that to paypal.
