This 2 day Mental Health First Responders course trains participants in common mental health problems, their symptoms and how to provide effective, immediate interventions. Attendees will develop key skills and, using our Five Step REACH approach, will learn how to:
• Reach out to someone in distress
• Encourage those in need to engage
• Assess for risk
• Connect the person to appropriate professional help
• Help them access the supports needed
By the end of the course, the fully trained Mental Health First Responders will be able to provide emergency mental health support to anyone struggling with an issue or crisis, helping to prevent problems from becoming more serious and de-escalating crisis situations until professional support arrives.
Who: Psychologist, Linda Finnegan will deliver the two day workshop.
When: The work shop will take place on September 4th & 5th from 09:00-17:00.
