Mental Health First Aid is the help given to someone experiencing a mental health problem before professional help is obtained.
Mental Health First Aid does not teach people to be therapists. However, it does teach people how to recognise the symptoms of mental health problems, how to provide initial help and how to guide a person towards appropriate help.
The course is aimed at anyone with an interest in promoting positive emotional and mental health.

We believe that management development has foundations in self awareness and understanding your style. We will work with you to identify how you work best, what you bring to a team and the areas you need to develop in order to meet council expectations, as well as the behaviours set out in the council values and behaviours framework. We will consider personality, learning styles, performance requirements and different leadership models to help you build a continuing professional development plan as a manager.
