– A review of how growth requests are managed

– More public support and backing from Government

– More engagement and access to direct funding for Traineeship subcontractors

– Removal of some unhelpful ‘success measures’ 

–  Tackling the disjoint between the recognised and accepted aims of the programme and how provider performance is currently being measured

 MHFA came to England in 2007 and was launched under the Department of Health: National Institute of Mental Health in England (NIMHE) as part of a national approach to improving public mental health.

MHFA training courses were first developed in Australia in 2001. In the years since it has evolved into a global movement with licensed programmes in 24 countries and counting. Over two million people have been trained in MHFA skills worldwide.

They have numerous free resources to download on their website tailored to schools, workplaces and universities.

For example, their  Line Managers Resource is an increasingly valuable tool for line managers across the spectrum of private, public and third–sector organisations. Exceptionally practical, the resource offers a step-by-step framework for creating healthier workplaces and has traditionally focused on key areas such as how to spot an employee experiencing mental ill health, and how to manage and support them at work, while they are off sick, and when they return after sickness absence. The resource also provides signposts to relevant employment legislation and further sources of help for both the individual and the organisation.
