Mental Health First Aid Refresher Training 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. 

However, in order to continue to perform this vital role safely, we believe that mental health must be treated equally to physical health – and just like physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid training must 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 course re-certifies you for three years, giving you: 

  • Up-to-date knowledge of poor mental health and the support available
  • Up-to-date knowledge of how to better support mental health in the workplace
  • Space to hone your skills when 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.

Who this course is for:

  • MHFAiders® who completed the course three or more years ago
  • MHFA Champions who completed the course three or more years ago
  • Those who were originally trained by another provider but want access to all of the incredible MHFA benefits provided by Siendo


  • This is a five-hour refresher course delivered either face-to-face or online (with a 30-minute lunch break built into each session)
  • Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities.
  • Whether delivered online or in-person, attendance numbers are protected at 16 people per course so that we can keep you safe and supported while you 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 learner.

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.
