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.

 

Who is it for?

Mental Health First Aid Training is for everyone. First of all it is for you. It helps to look after your own mental health and help yourself. You will feel more confident to speak about mental health issues with your family members, work colleagues and even strangers.

Who is the course aimed at?
