First Aid for Mental Health

With 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing a mental health challenge each year, there has never been more of a need to ensure your organisation is equipped to support your colleagues.  We believe every organisation should have at least one member of staff with formal First Aid for Mental Health training, in the same way we have a physical first aider.

 

Our First Aid for Mental Health training courses run throughout the year, in locations throughout the UK as well as online. Courses are open to the public and come with a regulated and practical qualification. We offer the following regulated courses:
