FREE TRAINING Mental Health First Aid

The Mental Health First Aid Training is a 12-hour intensive course to promote awareness of mental health issues among non-mental health professionals, to recognise those affected by mental health problems and offer initial help and guidance towards professional support.

  • Preserve life where a person may be a danger to themselves or others
  • Explain how to provide help to prevent the mental health problems developing into a more serious state
