The first line of defence

Just as conventional first aiders administer help to a physically injured person, we can train Mental Health First Responders to become equipped to deliver immediate care to a person who might be experiencing a personal crisis or developing a mental health issue.

These designated responders are not trained to become mental health professionals, but rather develop a better understanding, basic skills training and awareness when it comes to accessing support. By training a number of team members to better understand when a colleague may be suffering or in need of immediate help, our REACH programme offers an effective way to break down stigma and create a space where people feel able to seek help when they are struggling.

This is a two day course, delivered by experienced and fully qualified mental health professionals, and can be undertaken by a maximum of 20 people at a time.

Who should attend?

We recommend that this course is made available to all employees at every level of your organisation, allowing anyone to volunteer for the training. This is the best way of ensuring that attendees are enthusiastic and engaged in the training, and dedicated to their role as a first responder.

Managers and HR personnel are more than welcome to attend and undergo the first responder training, as often they are in the best position to spot signs of a mental health issue and provide the necessary help. However, this training should not be made mandatory for a specific group or team as it is best received when the first responders volunteer themselves.
