First Aid for Mental Health Training Overview:

Mental Health is how we think, feel and act. Everyone has mental health just as they have physical health. First aid training is common place in a variety of settings and environments, yet only covers physical illness. With approximately one in four people experiencing a mental health problem each year, and with mental health services stretched beyond capacity, it is important that people know what to do if someone experiences a mental health crisis at work or in their community. Like traditional first aid, Mental Health First Aid does not teach people to diagnose mental health conditions. Instead, the training teaches people how to recognise conditions and to offer initial support until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. Learners undertaking our First Aid for Mental Health courses will be considered First Aiders for Mental Health and be a point of contact within their workplace to help and support those with a suspected mental health condition.
