The MHFA half-day refresher is aimed at those who have already done the two-day course and are looking for a way to revisit, refresh and reflect on the skills and knowledge they gained. 

This new course was launched at the end of 2019 and mind//shift are currently amongst a small number of organisations to offer it.

Investing in the course will provides the confidence that  Mental Health First Aiders and MHFA Champions are performing their role safely and effectively.
