Gateshead Health will deliver an accredited two-day Mental Health First Aider training course on Wednesday January 25th & Thursday 26th 2023 at Gateshead College.

Mental health first aid is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. Training encourages people to talk more freely about mental health, reducing stigma and creating a more positive culture.

All colleagues are invited to express their interest in their course or register their interest in attending a future course. To do so, just fill in our form. Those looking to register to attend in January are asked to first obtain agreement from their line manager before ticking the box.

Please note that places are limited, and a waiting list will be in operation for those who are not offered a place on our January programme with more sessions set to be booked in during 2023.

More information about mental health first aiders can be found here, while you can also find a full list of our current trained mental health first aiders on our find a first-aider page.
