Mental Health First Aid course for Bluebird Care staff

May 19
Bluebird Care staff attended a 2-day Mental Health First Aid course at Bluebird Care Bromsgrove last week. Alan Cridge, Business Development Manager said:

“We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Mental ill health can strike at any time and can affect people from all walks of life. Although things are improving, stigma still exists around mental ill health. As a society, we don't tend to know how to take care of our mental health like we do our physical health. This means that people may not know how to support a friend, family member or colleague experiencing a mental health issue, or where to go for support with their own mental health. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing mental health issues.”

The course was provided by Rebecca Kilpatrick, of Kilpatrick Consultancy.
