MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID
1 in 4 people in the UK are likely to experience a mental health problem each year.
MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID
We all have mental health, like we have physical health.
If someone fell over and cut their knee, we would need to give them first aid to promote their recovery.
We are all aware of how we should be taking care of our physical health, what to eat, how much exercise to do to keep healthy. But do we know how to maintain our mental health?
If a friend, neighbour or work colleague were showing signs of a mental illness, we need to feel confident in knowing how to support them and these courses will give you that confidence to step forward and offer some help.
Our range of courses not only help you spot the signs of mental illness and give you the confidence to support someone. You will also discover suggestions into looking after your own mental health.
