Mental Health First Aid
The Mental Health First Aid course is like a physical First Aid course although it trains participants in giving initial help to people experiencing poor mental wellbeing and gives them the confidence in offering support prior to the appropriate professional help or treatment being obtained.
The course does not train people to be mental health workers or counsellors. It offers basic general information about mental health difficulties. The knowledge presented and understanding developed in the course helps to remove stigma and fear and to give confidence in approaching a person in distress.
