Mental Health First Aid

Course
What is Mental Health First Aid?
  • Mental Health First Aid is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

  • Mental Health First Aid 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.

Why become a Mental Health First Aider?
  • Mental health issues are common, 1 in 4 people will experience issues in any one year.

  • Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society.

  • Mental ill health is responsible for too many working days lost each year. 

  • Early intervention is vital and Mental Health First Aid provides the skills to identify someone in crisis at the early opportunities.

Who is the course great for?

  • Individuals who want to help someone who is experiencing a mental health crisis

  • HR teams who experience mental health issues with their colleagues

  • People managers & leadership teams

  • People supporting a family member or friend with a mental health issue

  • Organisations responding to their company culture and ethical responsibilities

  • Adult Mental Health First Aid courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards.

The impact the course has is amazing!

If there had been a Mental Health First Aider in the workplace when I was experiencing mental health issues, I believe the early intervention would've helped me to start my journey to recovery sooner. Having the ability to approach someone with confidence is invaluable.
