Taking part in a virtual course

Virtual courses make learning accessible to anyone with a computer and internet connection.

​Joining an online learning group might feel a little odd at first, but people adjust quickly and enjoy learning together.

Mental Health First Aid: Adults and Youth​

  • Learning takes place through four live sessions supported by self-learning activities in between.

  • Participants receive a 270 page manual and workbook to support their learning.

  • For our open courses, the live sessions take place across four mornings, with each session lasting 2 - 2.5 hrs.  If you are booking a course for a group, sessions can be scheduled to meet your needs.

  • Self-learning activities are a combination of reading, short films and quizzes that are accessed on the Online Learning Hub. You will be given access to this when you join a course.

  • The four live training sessions take place on Zoom.  You need a computer with a webcam and microphone to take part.  Smartphones and tablets work less well for theses sessions.

  • We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn
