It’s Time to Change

BlueRidge are approved providers of Mental Health First Aid England licensed courses. Our current courses are being delivered online.

The courses are evidence-based and internationally recognised teaching people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.

We offer the following courses:

Mental Health First Aid course – now available online

This course qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider.

Mental Health Aware ½ day course – now available online

Our half-day course is an introductory four-hour session to raise awareness of mental health.

Mental Health Champions 1-day course
