What is a Mental Health First Aid Training?

Mental Health first aid is not unlike physical first aid: help offered for someone suffering from ill health, in this case mental ill health. Mental Health First Aid courses will also teach you to spot earlier signs and symptoms of common mental health problems, such as anxiety,  depression, schizophrenia, etc. With the knowledge and tools learned in the course, individuals will be able to to deliver mental health first aid before professional medical treatment is available. The aims of mental health first aid are to:

  • Preserve life
  • Prevent further harm
  • Promote recovery
  • Provide comfort to the person who suffers  

 

Please note that as a qualified Mental Health First Aider, or someone who has undertaken a Mental Health First Aid course, you will not be able diagnose or treat, but you can identify  symptoms of anxiety, depresion, eating disorders, amongst other challenges, and encourage someone to seek professional help.These courses do not teach you to be a counsellor or therapist, but will empower you to react and signpost when someone in mental distress may need professional help.
