Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aidis a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be facing mental health issue.
Mental Health First Aid won’t incline you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
This course qualifies your employees as Mental Health First Aiders, providing them:
An in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing.
Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of a range of mental health issues.
Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress using the Mental Health First Aid action plan.
Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening.
Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support - whether through self-help resources, internal support such as EAP, or external sources such as their GP.
An understanding of how to keep themselves safe while performing duties.
