Building Mental Health has secured funding from the CITB for Mental Health First Aid England to deliver 13 Construction bespoke, MHFA Instructor Courses. Each course can take 12 candidates. The  objective is to have 150 Construction Mental Health First Aid Instructors operating within our industry by September 2019. These instructors will be fully certified to deliver the 2 day MHFA course that will in turn qualify on-site Mental Health First Aiders.

 

The mission of Building Mental Health is to enable everybody to improve the mental health and wellbeing of people in and around our industry, across the UK. An application pack is available and it has details of the courses, the application form, example letter of support from Employer, MHFA’s T&C’s and the eligibility criteria which hopefully will give applicants enough information to make an informed decision as to their suitability to attend and take this forward as well as the ability to commit the time needed.
