Mental Health First Aid Refresher

Explore our Accredited Mental Health courses, Corporate Mindfulness & Holistic Wellbeing programmes, carefully crafted to benefit both individuals and businesses. At VedaSante, we understand the pivotal role mental health and well-being play in organisational success.

According to Deloitte’s 2020 research, poor mental health costs UK employers £56 billion annually, hence for every £1 invested in well-being support, there is an impressive £5 return. By choosing our training, you are not just investing in your staff; you are investing in the success of your entire organisation.

Our courses are strategically designed to combat issues like absenteeism, presenteeism, and high staff turnover. The tangible outcomes of our programs include increased productivity and enhanced employee well-being.

Independent research affirms the impact of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses, which not only raise awareness and mental health literacy but also break down the stigma surrounding mental health. By fostering open conversations and encouraging early intervention, our courses make a significant impact on the journey to recovery.

Mental Health First Aid Refresher

(includes MHFAider® 3 year Support and Benefits Package) – Half Day course (Online)

Who is it for?

This course is available as either an online or face-to-face training session.

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. We recommend that Mental Health First Aiders® attend a Refresher course every three years. Just like physical first aid, updating skills and knowledge allows people to perform this vital role confidently and safely.
The MHFA Refresher course is not open to those who have completed the MHFA Champion course. MHFA England recommend that MHFA Champions complete a new MHFA course to become a MHFAider®.

Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities.
By keeping your mental health knowledge up to date with the MHFA Refresher, you’ll be eligible to take our internationally recognised MHFAider® qualification.

Enabling your Mental Health First Aiders® 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® are performing their role safely and effectively.
