  • Armed Forces Community Mental Health First Aid course - A bespoke 2-day course designed for serving Armed Forces personnel, the Force Reserve, veterans, dependants, friends, carers, Service Charities and those people working with the Armed Forces community. There are many misconceptions about mental health problems within the Armed Forces community. For example, due to the nature of Service life, the media has tended to focus on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) when, in fact, research indicates that other problems such as adjustment disorder and alcohol misuse are much more prevalent. Having a family member such as a spouse, son or daughter- who is serving in the Armed Forces can also be very stressful. Long periods of separation, during which the family member may be deployed to a conflict zone, can lead to isolation, anxiety and depression. If that family member is seriously injured, they may end up becoming a full time carer which brings its own stresses and strains. Click here for more information. 
  • Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) – An intense 2-day course in suicide prevention. The course is ideally suited to large organisations or individuals working in stressful and demanding environments as well as those supporting vulnerable people of all ages. The course will teach you to recognise the warning signs and identify personnel at risk. Students will learn how to engage and interact with those considering suicide to keep them safe and help them through their distressful situation. Suicide is the biggest cause of avoidable death in the UK and you are more likely to come across someone considering suicide than someone suffering a heart attack. Early intervention, support and a safe plan will ensure those contemplating suicide regain control of their lives. Click here for more information.
