First Aid for Mental Health Individuals

Making your Mental Health a priority 

Mental health is a common problem for all communities and organisations, of all ages, sexes, and cultures.

It doesn’t matter who you are, how much money you earn, or how many ‘friends’ or ‘followers’ you have in real life or on social media, we can all be affected by poor mental health throughout our lives.

For some, it’s a constant presence that can be alienating and lonely. For others, it can be a transient visitor that pops up now and again.

Gaining a qualification in First Aid for Mental Health will give you a greater awareness and understanding of your mental health, as well as those around you.

You might have your own experience of mental health or have family members, friends or work colleagues that you suspect are having problems. 

It’s often difficult to share our problems and even harder to know what to say to others who may be in trouble.  

Having an awareness of the signs and symptoms of a range of mental health concerns will put you in a much better position to provide constructive and meaningful support.

Being able to start the conversation and signpost for help could make all the difference.

If you want to be proactive in managing your mental health and supporting others, there will be a First Aid for Mental Health course that suits you too.

Empowering individuals to support their own mental wellbeing and the wellbeing of those around them
