About this course

A regular First Aider responds to people experiencing physical injury. They provide initial help and facilitate access to more specialist support. This course works on the basis that there is a role in our communities for mental health first aiders – people that feel confident to go to someone experiencing emotional distress, provide initial help and guide them towards more specialist support.

This accredited evidence-based course covers how to respond to 8 to 18 year olds experiencing mental and emotional distress.

Who is it for?

Mental health leads in schools (Senior leaders and Pastoral team). Due to the high demand for this course, places are limited to one representative per school and a charge of £100 will be made for participants that fail to attend without giving at least one week’s prior notice (except in extenuating circumstances)


Refreshments are provided but participants should provide their own lunch
