Mental Health First Aid

This course is aimed specifically at those who want to take Mental Health seriously in their organisation, particularly Health & Safety Professionals, Team Leaders, Managers and Human Resources Advisers.

This workshop covers

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. This is often translated into physical first aid – yet 1 in 4 of us will likely experience mental health issues at some point in our lives, including when we are at work. Mental Health First Aid is an educational course that teaches people how to identify, understand and help a person who may have a mental health issue. In the same way as we learn physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health.

Specifically designed to support individuals in dealing with crisis situations before professional help arrives, this two-day session equips participants with the confidence, knowledge and understanding of mental health problems so that they can support and guide colleagues appropriately.

This programme is not about developing practitioners. Rather, it is about offering an approach to actively support individuals in managing their mental state.

What will I achieve?

During this two day workshop, delegates will explore how to:

  • Identify the early stages of a mental health problem
  • Help someone who’s dealing with a mental health issue
  • Help stop mental ill health from worsening
  • Help someone have a quicker recovery
  • Guide someone towards appropriate professional help
  • Break the stigma of having a mental health problem
