Mental Health First Aid Training

Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, or is in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional treatment is received or the crisis resolves.

The 12 hour Mental Health First aid course teaches adults how to provide initial support to those who are developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis.

The Course covers:

It also covers Mental Health crisis situations such as:

  • Suicidal thoughts and behaviours
