Course Details

The two day adult course aims to give delegates the confidence to identify signs and symptoms of mental health, the framework to support someone in crisis and information on professional services for signposting.  The course offers an interactive approach and a warm and safe environment in which to explore the subject, using case studies, activities, discussions and videos to enhance the knowledge learned.

The course is broken down into 4 sessions, held over each half day, as follows:

Day 1

Morning – Introduction to Mental Health, Statistics, framework of crisis support and addressing the stigma

Afternoon – Depression and suicide, crisis support First Aid

Day 2

Morning – Anxiety including PTSD and OCD, Eating Disorders, Self-harm and crisis First Aid

Afternoon – Psychosis and the recovery model

All delegates receive a manual and workbook to keep and certificates will be handed out at the end of Day 2, on completion of all 4 sessions.

As you can imagine, there are some difficult topics to explore, but we aim to make the two days as enjoyable as possible and we encourage delegates to let us know in advance of the course if they have any worries.
