Mental Health First Aid is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, as early intervention can often enable recovery.

This training course is the gold standard in equipping you with skills you can use as a ‘first aid response’ to help someone in distress.

You will learn more about a variety of mental health problems, including recognising and supporting people in suicidal crisis, look at treatments currently used in England and increase your confidence in supporting others.

Learning takes place through a mix of group activities, presentations and discussions. What you learn will depend on the length of course you attend, courses take place over two days, one day or a half day ‘Mental Health Aware’ introductory course.
