Mental health first aid

Scottish Land and Estates is part of the recently set up National Rural Mental Health Forum, which consists of organisations with expertise in mental health and organisations which have a good outreach into all parts of rural Scotland. The Forum is supported by the Scottish Government and is using its network to influence Government policy, already feeding into the new social security powers that Scotland shall gain. The Forum is now starting to encourage rural organisations to look at "mental health first aid" training their staff. It is all too easy to be frightened to approach someone who may be facing a wellbeing crisis, mental health first aid training gives you the tools and confidence to intervene at an early stage and can prevent people reaching a crisis point.
