On this one-day 'First Aider for Mental Health' training course you’ll learn more about mental health and how to provide advice and support if someone near you shares that they’re experiencing mental health difficulties. You’ll also find out how to recognise a range of different mental health conditions; learn about the first aid action plan for mental health, and how you can recognise and manage stress.

Open to all who live and/or work in St Ives and neighbouring villages.
