These topics have been specifically tailored to the armed forces community and their culture.
The MHFA for the Armed Forces Community course takes place over 2 full days. The sessions will be a mix of presentation, group discussions and group work activities. Our instructors provide a very safe learning environment and are trained to support you throughout the whole course. If you don’t feel comfortable joining in certain bits, then don’t, we won’t make you do something you aren’t comfortable with.
Due to some of the sensitive subjects of our courses, including suicide, we limit numbers to 16 people. We want everyone to feel safe and our instructors can help if people find some bits particularly difficult.
You’ll receive a MHFA Armed Forces Community manual that you can take away with you at the end of the course and also an attendance certificate from MHFA England to say you are now Armed Forces Community Mental Health First Aider.
