About mental health first aid training

What is the mental health first aid course?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England is the accredited body who run our training courses and will issue your MHFA certificate. This is an in depth course, and we our aim is to train 1,000 riders to create a dedicated and effective mental health support group for the biker community.

Once you have completed the training you can volunteer to use it within our national network, supporting bikers and their families. We want to see mental health first aiders in every town and city in the UK.

So what does Mental Health First Aid do? 

  • Encourages people to challenge the language we use around mental health
  • Explores different frames of reference and the stigma attached to mental health
  • Helps people to understand what good mental health looks like
  • Explores the factors that can have an impact on our mental health
  • Looks at how to support yourself and others with self-care, giving the skills to influence your own mental health and help prevent mental ill health
  • Teaches how to intervene (including in a crisis), reassure and signpost people to further support
  • Teaches you  about diagnosable mental health conditions, what unwell looks like and how to spot these signs in yourself and others
  • Talks about what to do if you think someone is unwell and the steps to take for early intervention
  • Talks about recovery from mental illness and looking forward
