Why choose a first aid mental health course

As adults, we often find ourselves in various roles and relationships, such as being a parent, partner, friend, relative, colleague, or manager. It is crucial to recognize that our loved ones may encounter challenging situations at different stages of life. However, amidst our responsibilities, it is equally important to prioritize our mental and emotional well-being.

It is essential to ask ourselves: Am I ready? Do I possess the necessary knowledge and skills to provide initial mental health support? Am I confident in initiating conversations with individuals who may be experiencing crises such as suicidal ideation or panic attacks?

Similar to physical first aid, acquiring mental health first aid training equips us with the right knowledge and skills to:

  • Recognize signs of mental health issues
  • Provide initial support. Foster empathy and understanding
  • Encourage help-seeking behavior
