Mental Health First Aid

Lives can be saved in a medical emergency if there are people around who know what to do and can administer first aid until professional help arrives. But what if the emergency involves mental rather than physical illness? This is an increasingly frequent scenario, in our churches and community centres or even on the doorstep of our homes.

This one day course aims to raise awareness of mental health issues and reduce the stigma surrounding them, as well as equipping participants to respond in practical ways in emergency situations involving mental ill health.

Numbers limited but if there is a lot of interest we will aim to run this event again.

Nick Ellis lives in the diocese and is a Director of JJ Ellis Ltd, a provider of training services based in London and the South of England. He has been a front line serving Police Office in London for over 16 years where he has had to deal with mental health crises as well as supporting colleagues. He is a qualified MHFA trainer.
