Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid is an educational course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help a person who may be developing a mental health issue. In the same way as we learn physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health. 
Our courses are accredited by Mental Health First Aid England.


Please ensure you complete the forms at the end of the training.
