Mental Health First Aid Course

We deliver all of our Corporate Services at your preferred location and online.

What is the Mental Health First Aid Course?

Just as conventional first aiders administer help to a physically injured person, trained Mental Health First Aiders are equipped to deliver immediate care to a person who might be experiencing a personal crisis, or developing a mental health issue.

Using evidence-based, engaging material, the course will give all attendees a basic understanding of mental health and common mental health issues and illnesses, with a special focus on positive mental health, its importance, and how to promote it.

By the end of the course, you will have trained members of staff who will have an increased level of understanding of mental health difficulties, how to support someone in distress, and how to bridge an individual into appropriate care.

Our 12 Hour Mental Health First Aid course covers:

1) Overview of all the different types of Mental Health issues

2) How these issues can arise in the workplace

3) Skills required to be a mental health first aider

4) What to do in an emergency situation (Crisis management)
