HEALTH FIRST AID FOR THE ARMED SERVICES COMMUNITY
Members of the Deptherapy Team took part in a day course run by Richard Castle one of our Patrons. Mental Health First Aid for the Armed Services Community is tailored towards the identification of mental health issues in those we work with on our programmes.
There are four core elements to the programme –
Section One – Mental Health First Aid for the Armed Services Community
Section Two – Suicide and Depression
Section Three- Self Harm, Eating Disorders and Psychosis
Section Four – Anxiety Disorders which includes TSD
The course is a mix of taught, videos, some of which are really potent and exercises.
The two really intense days of study were held at Coral Cay’s HQ in Farnham thanks to one of our other Patrons Alistair Cole.
