What you’ll Learn

Course Format

MHFA for the suicidal person is a 4-hour face-to-face course delivered by two trainers. Given the sensitive and emotional nature of suicide, one trainer is always on hand to teach and the other to provide emotional support to participants affected by the material being covered.

All participants receive a handbook to keep and receive a digital certificate of completion.

Who can attend a MHFA course?

MHFA for the suicidal person is open to all participants and is ideally aimed at those aged 18 or above. The course is designed to be educational and is not a therapy or support group.
