Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid teaches people in the workplace how to identify, understand and support someone who may have or be developing a mental health issue.

Our qualified staff teach it in the same way as physical first aid. We’ll equip you with the basic skills to recognise warning signs and offer first response support.

Having such first aiders is proven to have a positive impact on workforces, as well as reducing sickness related to mental health.

Mental health first aid is useful for everyone in all walks of life, but especially:

•Social care professionals
•HR managers
•All working professionals
•Team leaders or managers
•Anyone who would like a more in-depth understanding of mental health

Simply recognising if someone is suicidal could be life-saving. Mental health first aid increases understanding and confidence in starting conversations about mental health.
