Armed Forces Mental Health First Aid training: FREE two-day accredited course.

MHFA training courses teach people to spot the symptoms of mental health issues, offer initial help and guide a person towards support.

We don’t teach people to be therapists – but just like physical first aid, we teach people to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

Developed in collaboration with the UK’s leading military support charities, Armed Forces MHFA is tailored to the unique culture and mental health needs of the military community.

For everyone in the Armed Forces community – serving personnel, veterans, their families and support organisations – our training gives people the skills to:

    • Stop a preventable health issue from escalating by spotting and addressing it early
    • Know how and where to access treatment if it’s needed, for a faster recovery
    • Help keep themselves, the people they support, their colleagues and their families healthy
    • Minimise the impact of mental ill health on work and life

You can read more about the course here on the national website.

What makes Moray Wellbeing Hub courses different?

Real life experiences. We believe in harnessing the power of life experiences, taking what can be challenging and abstract concepts and make it more ‘real’, practically useful and easier to relate to for participants. Wherever possible our courses are delivered by peer-trainers, people who know the approaches and experiences first hand from their own life.
Keeping it local. Moray has a wealth of support and education organisations in wellbeing. Our courses are delivered for the benefit of the Moray community and therefore endeavour to help our participants build sustainable links beyond any course; resources they can signpost to and access in Moray. Wherever possible we will use local trainers, venues and resources, as well as promote and deliver our courses in mutual partnership with all sizes of local organisations.
Who can attend?
The course is open to anyone from the armed forces community seeking skills in mental health first aid. We ask that people help us to make the best use of the resources by not attending if they do not identify with this community within Moray.
How are places allocated on the workshop?
Applications for places will be checked by our team and spaces will be allocated on the basis of the answers you give in your booking form. We are looking for participants that show commitment to Moray Armed Forces Community.
