Mental Health First Aid Training

Ynys Môn and Gwynedd Mind can provide Mental Health First Aid Training and Youth Mental Health First Aid Training. Mental Health First Aid is the immediate help given to someone experiencing mental distress. Ynys Mon & Gwynedd Mind is seeking to increase the pool of Mental Health First Aid Caregivers within the community with the following aims:

Mental Health problems are extremely common. One in four people will experience a problem with their mental health in the course of a year. Despite the frequency of Mental Health problems, they remain misunderstood and are not often discussed publicly. When they are, and often in the Media they are presented inaccurately which leads to fear, stigma and discrimination. This in turn prevents individuals from seeking help. Many people are not well informed and often do not know how to respond. GPs, Counsellors and Mental Health Team members can all assist people with Mental Health problems. However, just as with accidents and medical emergencies, such assistance is not always available when a problem first arises. This is when members of the public can offer immediate aid and support the person to get appropriate help.
 
Ynys Môn & Gwynedd Mind is seeking to skill up as many individuals as possible whilst working towards a community that makes it acceptable for individuals to talk openly about their mental distress, without a fear of rejection or discrimination, whilst promoting good Mental Health, Well-being and Recovery.
