A Mental Health First Aid course teaches you basic first aid skills to help someone who’s struggling with a mental health issue or going through a mental health crisis to find the right support. These valuable life skills can be used at home, with friends or in the workplace.
Put simply, it’s like providing physical first aid to a person who’s broken their leg or injured their arm. The goal is to help the person find the right professional support so they can start their road to recovery. It’s not your job to fix the injury or solve the person’s problems.
