Research by the Mental Health Foundation 2015 found 92% of us would stop and help someone injured in a road traffic accident, but only 51% would offer to help someone crying in public. The survey also found that a quarter of people would not know what to do or say if someone close to them at home or work had worries about their mental health.
This 2-day specialist course has been devised to increase participants’ knowledge and confidence to provide first aid and support for people experiencing mental health problems at home and at work. Recognised and approved by the Public Health Agency, the training educates and delivers the message that mental health problems are everybody’s business, affecting neighbours, friends, colleagues, relatives and ourselves.
