First Aid for Mental Health

At PJM Wellbeing we believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. Therefore we are delighted to offer First Aid for Mental Health courses, teaching trainees to recognise mental health conditions, offer support and signpost to professional support if needed. As in traditional first aid, we feel it is important for businesses, schools, organisations to have first aiders for mental health who are able to respond to a mental health crisis and support a person towards recovery. Below are details of the 3 certificated courses we offer. These are adaptable and can be tailored to the needs of your organisation.
