Posted by Amanda Furness


We have now increased our offering of Mental Health Awareness training and have introduced the following four courses:

Mental Health First Aid  (2 day course) – delegates learn how to identify, understand and help a colleague who may be developing a mental health problem.

Mental Health First Aid LITE (4 hour course) – an introductory mental awareness course which is suitable for all employees and can be followed up with the full 2 day award.

ASIST, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (2 day course) – this workshop provides delegates with the skills to intervene with someone at risk, working with them to help them feel less overwhelmed and suicidal.

safeTALK, Suicide Alertness for Everyone (3 hour course) – this short course enables delegates to identify people who may be at risk, allowing them to address the topic of suicide and provide a vulnerable person with resources to help them stay safe.

The trainer for the above courses is Christine Clark, who has over 20 years experience of supporting organisations and individuals in the area of mental ill health (please note – an alternative trainer will deliver the courses in Scotland as the accreditation is awarded by a different organisation).
