You will learn the knowledge and skills to offer first aid for a mental health problem.
Mental health problems can affect anyone in the community. Inaccurate and stigmatising attitudes towards people with mental illness are common.
Many people lack the knowledge, skills, and confidence to support a, friend, family member or co-worker experiencing a mental health problem. This includes how to approach someone and start a safe conversation. This is a very common and normal phenomenon.
Many people we work with have said they have experienced times where they have felt ‘something isn’t right’. Or they thought their client or friend may be experiencing a mental illness, but have not known how to start the conversation.
This course teaches you exactly how to have those conversations.
