Mental Health First Aid Courses


Gain a better understanding of mental health issues within the workplace and the effect they can have on both individuals and your business with our Mental Health First Aid training. Learn how to help employees who are struggling with their mental or emotional state by implementing positive changes within the workplace.

Kays Medical offer a range of Mental Health First Aid training courses to businesses and organisations within the UK. These courses have been specially designed and curated to help support and promote positive mental health and wellbeing within the workplace. Learn how to identify employees that may be struggling and put a plan of action in place to help.

Although mental health issues are hard for staff to deal with within their personal lives, they can also have a direct impact on staff turnover, presenteeism, absenteeism and reputation. Having a fully trained individual within your workforce that can help implement positive change is key to helping your employees and workplace thrive. With studies finding that nearly 3 in every 10 employees within the UK suffer from mental health issues, Mental Health First Aid training courses are just as vital as physical First Aid.

At Kays Medical, we offer different Mental Health First Aid training courses to suit all needs. Whether you are looking to become fully Mental Health First Aid qualified, or to learn how to support yourself and others, we have plenty of available options. All of our MHFA courses are OFQUAL regulated, and HSE accredited.

Our Mental Health First Aid online courses are extremely flexible and can be delivered to anyone at any time across the UK. With this, we are able to tailor our courses to your business’ needs and requirements. If you would prefer our face to face Mental Health First Aid training courses, we will travel to you. A full risk assessment will be carried out prior and appropriate safety measures put in place.
