Event Details

Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, or who is in a mental health crisis, until appropriate professional treatment is received or the crisis resolves. The Mental Health First Aid course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to adults who are developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis. Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of these mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective.

This course covers how to assist adults in these crisis situations:

  • Suicidal thoughts and behaviours
  • Panic attacks
  • Traumatic events
  • Severe psychotic states
  • Severe effects from alcohol and drugs
  • Aggressive behaviours

This course also teaches you how to help people with the following mental health problems before a crisis develops:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Psychosis
  • Substance misuse

Learning Objectives:

  • Skills in how to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems.
  • Knowledge of the possible causes or risk factors for these mental health problems.
  • Awareness of the evidenced based medical, psychological and alternative treatments available.
  • Skills in how to give appropriate initial help and support someone experiencing a mental health problem.
  • Skills in how to take appropriate action if a crisis situation arises involving suicidal behaviour, panic attack, stress reaction to trauma, overdose or threatening psychotic behavior.
