About this Event

Does SMHFA work?

Mental health first aid has been rigorously evaluated in Scotland. Participants reported a range of benefits to their own and others mental health.

People have given us many examples of the benefits of SMHFA.

Here are just a few:

A person who was considering suicide was helped and given time to reconsider. Afterwards they knew that they didn’t really want to die.

Someone with severe depression was helped to think about recovery and to find ways to help herself.

Participants on the courses have reported that their own mental health has improved after the course

After the training people say that they feel more confident about approaching a person who appears distressed.

We know that:

When we offer to help kindly and without judging or talking down to a person they often feel relieved and comforted.

When we listen without judging and without immediately trying to fix problems a person will often talk through the crisis and feel calmer and more able to get appropriate help.

When we understand the nature of mental health problems they are not so frightening.

You too can learn how to:

help in a crisis such as a panic attack or suicidal thoughts and feelings

ask questions that will help the person

listen without judgment and give the person space to talk about how they feel

give relevant information about help that is available.
