Our 2-day Mental Wellbeing First Aid course is suitable for all adults and can be applied in the workplace and in our own lives. Packed with practical advice, delegates will be able to spot signs of declining mental health, and by using a practical action plan, be able to appropriately offer someone help both in an emergency and longer-term situation.
Throughout our workshop-style sessions, we will have lots of time to discuss specific mental health conditions, work through case studies and become better prepared to help ourselves and guide and support those around us.
This course isn’t about having all the answers, and it’s not about teaching people to have all the solutions to other people’s problems. It’s about genuine empathy for others and helping individuals recognise early warning signs to help prevent illness or decline in wellbeing.
