Additional Information

This 12-hour Standard Mental Health First Aid course is for any interested adult.

Learn about the signs and symptoms of common and disabling mental health problems in adults, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

This is an education course, to learn how to give first aid to others, and is not a therapy or support group.

This course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals.

Some feedback from a participant:

"Fantastic, keep it up Ruth, conscientiously considered and considerate; the course and content as well as all the smaller details from individual food requirements through to post course follow up... took care to provide the content effectively whilst took care of how we were going as well as going with it!! Thank you :) So glad I did this course, the knowledge gained having such broad relevance and application from personal relationships through to workplaces and public events... Would be great to see this course become mandatory for everyone in positions of responsibility around others (who don't already have MHC qualifications)... highly recommend this course with Ruth, please care to do it too."
