Description

In February the Scottish Group and the Equality and Diversity Group are offering a Mental Health First Aid CPD workshop in Edinburgh. Places are limited and must be booked through Eventbrite. Mental health issues are an increasingly becoming more relevant to our work. This can be through our work with colleagues, volunteers or even ourselves. This workshop intends to provide an introduction to mental health issues, how we can understand the issues, help others through reading symptoms and prepare ourselves for future work. Topics covered will include depression, anxiety, suicide, psychosis, self-harm and recovery. Each topic will look at how to read the signs and symptoms and indeed self-help. The workshop will also signpost to further help and training.
