Mental Health First Aid Training.
The number of people being diagnosed with Mental Health Illnesses is rapidly increasing. So to is the masive cost to business through absenteeism. However the greatest cost is that in lives lost or damaged through Suicide or Self-Harming.
We all have 'Mental Health' and most of us have been affected by 'poor' mental health either directly or through friends or family members. There is a huge stigma attached to the thought of Mental Illness and this can also add to the difficulties of the illness itself.
Our course is an NHS recognised and certificated course held locally over 2 days. It is available for Companies and Corporations and Individuals.
This course does not train people to be mental health workers. It offers basic general information about mental health problems. The knowledge presented and understanding developed in the course helps to remove stigma and fear and to give confidence in approaching a person in distress.
