Mind is working to create mentally healthy communities. We believe that mental health is everyone’s business…
Mental Health First Aid Training is our key strategy for raising awareness about mental health and equipping our community with the knowledge and skills they need to support people who may be in crisis.
- To change people’s minds and attitudes about mental illness
- To reduce stigma and discrimination and dispel myths about mental illness
- To provide advice and guidance
- To equip people with the skills to respond to people in crisis
- To support suicide prevention
- To promote and support mental wellbeing
In 2018, we are running two main Mental Health First Aid programmes:
