Cairde staff are certified in Mental Health First Aid

MH

Cairde staff has been trained in Mental Health First Aid. Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves.

Mental Health First Aid is a 12 hour training course first developed in Australia in 2000. The aim of the course is to improve mental health literacy within the community and provide a framework by which to respond to a mental health crisis.
