We have an amazing opportunity for ITC Centres to gain an insight into Mental Health First Aid.
Mental Health is currently a hot topic and is being regularly discussed in the media and has received a boost from the Prime Minister.
Many ITC Centres deliver first aid qualifications aimed at physical issues. However mental health issues are just as common as physical problems so should we not treat mental health issues in a similar way to physical problems? The answer is, of course we should and this course will give the knowledge and skills necessary to be able to deal with common mental health crises.
The aim of this event is to inform how to respond to a mental health crisis and what the most common mental health problems are. Those attending will receive training in asking appropriate questions, listening without judgement and giving guidance regarding seeking help.
The event is strictly for ITC Centre staff ONLY
The event will be delivered by Purple Horizons Training.
