Scotland’s Mental Health First Aid
2 day course – 26/27 August & 22/23 October
Mental Health First Aid is an initial response to distress and is the help given to a person before appropriate professional help or treatment can be obtained. This two day course does not train people to be mental health workers, but offers general information about mental health difficulties. The knowledge presented and understanding developed in the course, helps to remove stigma and fear and to give confidence in approaching a person in distress.

Comments from previous course participants….. "This course met my needs. I wanted to find out more about mental health and this covered a good selection", "I feel better equipped to provide support/spot signs of mental health issues and have conversations with people".
