A Mental Health First Aider in the workplace is the ‘go-to person’ for anyone who is experiencing some form of mental health condition i.e. stress, anxiety or depression.

The first aider will be there to help guide the person in distress and support where ever necessary and therefore, be able to intervene before it escalates.

This course is for first aiders in a workplace, managers, supervisors and general staff. It can be applied to any working environment i.e. construction, manufacturing, offices, healthcare, volunteers etc.

Whilst the expiry for this course is 3x years, an annual refresher to remain updated on current knowledge and to support your ongoing confidence is recommended. See here for more details!
