Mental Health First Aid training for those interested in learning what to do in scenarios that require it. Individuals will learn how to help those suffering with anxiety/ panic attacks, depression, self harm/ suicidal tendencies, psychotic episodes etc..
First aid training is a vital skill but not many people realise mental health is just as big of an issue. This would allow those who wish to take on training to do so in close proximity to the university, rather than traveling miles away to attend a course. Funding wouldn’t have to be fully established by the SU, standard courses cost around £300 so even a slight reduction would help out students wanting to gain this valuable skill set!
