Event description

Description

1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their life. Even so most of us know very little about mental health. There is lots of evidence to prove that early intervention can help slow down or stop a mental health problem, yet we often don't spot the signs that someone is struggling until very late.

As a Mental Health First Aider, you will provide support to colleagues around you, from other team members you may be working with to your branch colleagues, helping to assess and assist and sign post to support both from within the health service and wider networks. Sometimes, all it takes is a listening ear to help someone access the right support and make decisions about their mental health to improve their overall wellbeing.

This Mental Health First Aid course will teach you to recognise the early signs of a mental health problem, and give you the confidence and knowledge to help.

What you will learn on the course:

  • Spot the early signs of a mental health problem
  • Feel confident helping someone experiencing a problem
  • Provide help on a first aid basis
  • Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others
  • Help stop a mental illness from getting worse
  • Help someone recover faster
  • Guide someone towards the right support
  • Reduce the stigma of mental health problems

The trainer will be Alison Surtees and Kate Elliott

Please note this course is only open to freelance BECTU/Prospect members.

As this is a free course (except the cost of the manual) we think it will be very popular with members, we therefore ask that if you cannot attend, please email Alison Surtees asurtees@bectu.org.uk.
