Mental Health (England) First Aid training
Puslished: 11 January 2018
The Mental Health (England) First Aid training course is focused on providing attendees with the confidence to support someone experiencing poor mental health. It is not a course for them to focus on a diagnosis but rather recognising the symptoms and then knowing what to do.
The main topics covered are:
Depression Suicide Self Harm
Anxiety Psychosis Schizophrenia
The aims are:
· To preserve life where a person may be at risk of harm to themselves or others
· To provide support to prevent the mental health issue from becoming more serious before professional help arrives
· To promote the recovery of good mental health
· To provide comfort to a person with a mental health issue
· To raise awareness of mental health issues
· To reduce stigma and discrimination
· To improve own health and wellbeing
It is a 2-day course, delegates must attend both days in full to receive accreditation.
The course will start promptly at 9.30am and finish at 4.30pm on both days.
The recommended cost of this course is usually £300 per delegate, however, we have received funding to help offset most of this and the cost to you is only £90 per delegate.
