Mental Health Awareness Course
Mental Health Awareness Courses – 1 Day
Our Mental Health awareness courses teaches people how to recognise those critical warning signs that may develop into Mental Health issues. It also helps the learner understand those with existing Mental Health conditions. It is critical that the learner knows what to do in these cases as a physical First Aid Course does not provide you with the knowledge and skill to treat these significant and sensitive cases.
