In Liverpool, there is a growing need for individuals and businesses to have the knowledge and skills to support those struggling with mental health issues. That’s where TL Training comes in.

What is Mental Health First Aid Training?

Mental Health First Aid Training is a course designed to teach individuals how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. It is similar to traditional first aid training, but focuses on mental health instead of physical health. The course covers a range of topics, including common mental health disorders, how to provide initial help, and how to guide someone towards appropriate professional help.

Why is it Important?

Mental health issues are becoming increasingly prevalent in society, and it is important for individuals and businesses to have the knowledge and skills to support those who may be struggling. In Liverpool, the need for mental health first aid training is especially high, as the city has some of the highest rates of mental health issues in the UK. By equipping individuals with the tools to recognise and respond to mental health issues, we can create a more supportive and understanding community.
