Mental Health First Aid

starts with you

Mental Health First Aid...


Our aim is to deliver the courses with an openness that creates a safe environment to de-stigmatise, humanise and simplify our perceptions of mental health. To develop our understanding and strength, enabling us to be ready when we approach or are approached by someone in a crisis. To ask, 'how are you?' and be patient, allow thought and build trust, then provide the information to start their journey of recovery.
We promise to challenge you on the courses, to be inclusive and to ensure the courses are appropriately fun.
