LISTEN NON JUDGEMENTALLY

THIS NOT AS EASY AS IT SOUNDS.

Listening to someone , really listening takes skill , most of the time as someone talks we are thinking of our reply and with this we can miss important information.

Listening non judgementally , without thinking about how we feel about what someone is saying , how it fits in with our beliefs but actually trying to hear their feelings and thoughts as they feel and experience their own reality

MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AIMS

Our aim at mental health first is to help educate people to recognise symptoms of mental illness and to provide the training required to help with signposting to the appropriate professional help

HOW WILL THIS COURSE HELP ME AS A MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AIDER

Knowing how to help someone in mental health crisis can be daunting , knowing what to say , what to do , not wanting to make the situation worse .

Ask yourself what you would say to someone that you believed was thinking about suicide.

Research shows that it is better to ask the question " are you having thoughts of suicide?’.

Even the language that we use such as committing suicide , something that can be said naturally can be unhelpful as the word  committing relates to when suicide was a seen as a crime or a sin

What if they said yes , how would you deal with this.

This course will give you the tools to be able to help with a situation such as this.
