Mental Health First Aiders
With the provision of trained Mental Health First Aiders in College, we aim to support the wellbeing of both our staff and students.
Mental Health First Aid is typically offered by someone who is not a mental health professional but rather by someone in the person’s social network.
A mental health first aider is trained to spot the early signs of a mental health issue, how to provide initial help and how to guide a person towards appropriate treatment and other sources of supportive help. They are NOT trained to provide a diagnosis or therapy.
