Mental Health First Aid for Schools
This 1 day course provides managers and staff with the knowledge and skills to identify the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues, provide non-judgemental support and reassurance, and to guide a person to seek professional support should they need it to recover.
Mental Health First Aid for Schools assists professionals to understand the risk factors to wellbeing, and help pupils develop the resilience to overcome adverse circumstances including dealing with predictable changes and transitions, and keep on top of new challenges posed by social media and technology.
We help school leaders implement a whole school approach to ensure that all parts of the school organisation work together to provide a solid base of positive co-ordinated and planned promotion of wellbeing.
The course will also help employers to meet their legal obligations to provide a safe working environment and to reduce risks relating to the health safety and welfare of staff.
