Mental health first aid training experts
The number one provider of mental health first aid training courses with free aftercare and support
Who we work with
How we work
We provide qualified mental health first aid training to organisations like yours. Each person who you put forward to participate in the 2 day course will be accredited as an Ofqual level 3 Mental Health First Aider.
Our work doesn’t finish there…we are the only provider in the UK to offer free aftercare support for an entire year after the course is complete.
Why? because we really do care.
Unrivalled support packages for every delegate
We take great care of your employees too. Not only will they receive the best training with qualified experts, but every single delegate who takes part in our training will have access to a dedicated 24/7 support line and our qualified therapists, in addition to ongoing support and advice from their trainer, free membership to MH-FAN, and continued learning and support in the form of monthly check-ins and online resources.
This is something that none of our competitors offer – and you’ll get it at no extra cost; because at the end of the day, we just want to be sure that your mental health first aiders are getting the help and support they need.
We’re the experts in ongoing support and care for MHFAiders
It’s fantastic to have MHFAiders as part of your mental health wellbeing strategies, but who is looking after them?
Our aftercare package
If you choose Red Umbrella to supply your Mental Health First Aider training, your employees will receive a comprehensive aftercare and support package free of charge, for one year.
Together with our team and clients, we’ve produced the most comprehensive and interactive mental health awareness webinars available to help support your mental health first aiders long after they’ve received their training.
It’s vitally important to make sure that the MHFAiders that have volunteered to support their colleagues have a safe place to voice and explore their experiences within the role. Therefore we offer MHFAider supervision in groups of 6, run by our lead therapists that are also national mental health first aider in the workplace train the trainers.

What our clients think
Red Umbrella has been engaging, supportive and passionate about all things mental health and support since we started our journey together. Whilst initially we began working on a bespoke training day and the arrangement of mental health first responders, we have been particularly grateful for the speedy response in arranging specific support during the coronavirus pandemic, at a time when our employees need it most. We are looking forward to continuing our journey with Red Umbrella to continue to develop the best ways to continue to support the wellbeing of our employees.

Josie Lazenby Senior Manager – Occupational Health & Wellbeing
Due to the amazing service received from Red Umbrella, we decided to partner with them as our partner of choice regarding Mental Health First Aiders and their ongoing support. Red Umbrella even took all previously trained MHFAiders under their wing as part of their offering.
We receive the best training and even more importantly all our MHFAiders receive ongoing support, which is vital.
Massive thank you to Red Umbrella for all your support so far and ongoing.
Antony Smeaton – Senior Manager – Firstsource Academy
We have been using care coins and Red Umbrella services for almost 12-months to support our employees in respect of Mental Health & well-being. We have just purchased a further Care Coins package as throughout lockdown we have seen the number of referrals increase rapidly. Our employees who have been referred have responded really positively to the service, and we have seen the impact to be extremely positive across the business. The service is extremely personable and our preferred supplier for counseling and therapist support, as well as MHFAider aftercare and support.
