The number of people being diagnosed with mental health illnesses is rapidly increasing. So too is the massive cost to business through absenteeism. However, the greatest cost is not 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’s 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 certified course held locally over 2 days. It is available for companies on 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 have developed in the course helped remove stigma and fear and to give confidence and approaching a person in distress.
The following is a brief outline of what is covered in the course:
-Guidance on becoming a mental health first aider and attitudes to mental health issues.
-The recovery messages.
-The impact of alcohol and drugs on mental health.
-Introduction to suicide intervention.
-How to offer first aid to someone experiencing depression.
-How to offer first aid to someone experiencing anxiety.
-How to offer first aid to someone experiencing a psychotic episode.
This course is an NHS approved course and an NHS certificate is issued on completion of the training.
You can join one of our courses or arrange for us to present a course at your place of work or club.
