Youth Mental Health First Aid Online

MHFA England accredited course

Become a youth mental health first aider via online virtual classroom training. This is an in-depth look at mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing. This course will give you in-depth skills to recognise and provide first aid to a young person who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts or crisis, eating disorders or self-harm. See the full youth mental health first aid course outline.


This is the official MHFA England accredited training.  At the end of the training you will get a certificate to say you are a Youth Mental Health First Aider and join a community of over 3 million people worldwide who are trained in mental health first aid skills. 

The course is now available for the first time online via virtual classroom training.  


Whilst we always advocate for in-person training in mental health topics we recognise that with the training now being more vital than ever this needs to be made as accessible as possible. If you prefer in-person classroom training please see Public Youth Mental Health First Aid Courses.

The course is split into four manageable sessions and learning is divided between self-lead learning and live interactive sessions;


Self-lead learning format (approx 7 hours)

An intuitive and interactive platform which guides you through learning via videos, work book activities, quizzes and manual reading. 


Live sessions (4 x 2.5 hour sessions)

Facilitated by two Mental Health First Aid Instructors via the MHFA England online learning hub platform which is easy to use and access. We guide learners through the course with presentations, group discussions and activities. Participation within peoples learners comfort zones is actively encouraged and we welcome all questions.
