Armed Forces Mental Health First Aid Course

Mental Health First Aid England are offering a two day course to train people as Armed Forces Mental Health First Aiders.

This two day course gives people:

  • An in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that affect well-being for the armed forces community

  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues

  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress

  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening

  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support - whether that’s self-help resources, through the MOD, the NHS, support charities, or a mix

Places on the course are restricted to serving and ex-serving personnel, their family members, and support services who work with the armed forces community.


  • Two day face-to-face course across four manageable sessions

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

  • Each session is built around a Mental Health First Aid action plan

  • We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn


Everyone who completes the course gets:

  • A certificate of attendance to say they are an Armed Forces Mental Health First Aider

  • An Armed Forces MHFA manual to keep and refer to whenever they need it
