First Aid for the Mind

Description

With mental health issues becoming more and more common, first aiders at work and at home are
now being called to help with conditions related to the mind. Mental health issues can be difficult to
recognise and frightening to deal with. Early recognition and intervention are key to effectively
assisting in mental health emergencies. Our courses are delivered by experienced professionals who
give you strong skills to recognise the signs of mental disorders early, effective strategies to assist,
and the confidence to use them.
This course covers recognising and responding to:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar
  • Suicide
  • Trauma and stressors
  • Schizophrenia and psychosis
  • Eating disorders
  • Substance misuse
  • Personality disorders
  • Obsessive compulsive

There is no formal assessment as part of this course, but opportunity is provided to practice practical
skills.
