FAMH Overview

This half-day Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health (FAMH) course provides learners with an understanding of mental health, which helps break down the stigma associated with mental health.

It is reported that this year 1 in 4 of us will suffer with mental health. Therefore the course is aimed at everyone from public to work colleagues, to provide the skills to recognise someone who may be suffering with mental health and to sign post them to the support they need.
