Why complete First Aid for Mental Health training?


First aid does more than help save lives.


Although first aid training undoubtedly helps to save lives it also can help to reduce a person's recovery time and make the difference between the patient having a temporary or long term disability.


Now more than ever, Mental health matters and we are keen to encourage people to be trained in First aid for mental health and help to break the silence and stigma associated with mental health conditions.

Mental Health First Aid provides information and resources you can offer to someone to provide emotional support and practical help. There are many professionals who can offer help when someone is in crisis or may be experiencing the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or addiction.

Why complete First Aid training?


The aim of first aid is to reduce the effects of injury or illness suffered at work, whether caused by the work itself or not. First-aid provision must be ‘adequate and appropriate in the circumstances’. This means that sufficient first-aid equipment, facilities and personnel should be available at all times, taking account of alternative working patterns, to:

  • give immediate assistance to casualties with both common injuries or illnesses and those likely to arise from specific hazards at work;

  • summon an ambulance or other professional help.

If an employer has identified that first-aiders are needed in their workplace, they must ensure that those identified to be first first aiders undertake training appropriate to the need - typically this may be first aid at work (FAW) or emergency first aid at work (EFAW):​
