Mental Health First Aid – Refresher Course

If you are a Mental Health First Aider or MHFA Champion, you have gained skills for life that will support you and the people around you. 

In order to continue to perform this vital role safely, we believe that mental health should be treated equally to physical health – and just like physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid training should be kept up to date. 

Therefore, if you completed the Mental Health First Aid or Mental Health Champion course three or more years ago, it is time to refresh those wonderful skills of yours!

This four-hour MHFA Refresher course will empower you to: 

  • Keep your awareness of mental health supports current
  • Update your knowledge of mental health and what influences it 
  • Practice applying the Mental Health First Aid action plan

*Please note that the MHFA Refresher is only for those who completed an Adult Mental Health First Aider or MHFA Champion course.


  • This is a half day course delivered either face-to-face or online.
  • Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities.
  • We limit numbers to 20 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.


  • A certificate to show you have renewed your Mental Health First Aid certification (valid for 3 years).
  • An informative ‘refresher’ manual to refer to whenever you need it*.
  • A workbook including a helpful toolkit to support your own mental health*.

* When delivered online, MHFA England will send the delegate manuals and workbooks directly to each delegate.

How often should MHFA England skills be refreshed? 

Just like physical first aid, we recommend that Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions attend a Refresher course every three years.
