Our mental health first aid course is a two-day course designed to help you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance-use related crisis. The course teaches you how to identify warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for helping someone whether they are in a state of crisis or non-crisis, and support options.
We will provide you with an understanding of the UK legislation that supports mental illness, and the impact that such legislation has in supporting individuals with mental illness both in life and in work. We explore the importance of legislation, and the consequences of not following it in relation to mental illness.
The course will help you to gain a better understanding into mental illness, and the impact that this can have on an individual. You will also learn the immediate measures to take in order to address the symptoms of mental illness and how to support someone showing symptoms.
