First Aid for Mental Health

Mental health is about how we think, feel and behave.

We can all take positive steps to improve our own mental health and the mental health of others.

St Andrew’s First Aid have introduced a range of first Aid for Mental Health courses to help improve awareness of mental health and give advice to those looking to support someone with a mental health condition.

These courses are SQA certified, and certificates are valid for three years.

Most of us would not know what to do when faced with a mental health crisis. Our First Aid for Mental Health courses teach practical skills to spot the signs of someone suffering from mental ill health and to confidently provide support.
