We are running a Mental Health First Aid course open to the public in Witney in October 2012.

Mental Health First Aid is an accredited 2-day training course designed to give participants the knowledge and skills to recognise the signs of mental ill-health and support someone to seek the right help. The course is open to anyone living or working in Oxfordshire. It’s aimed at people without specialist mental health training, from family members and carers providing support to someone, to employers and line managers, to someone who might support those likely to experience mental health problems. On completion of the course participants receive a certificate. More information is attached.

Dates: Fridays 5 and 12 October 2012 (participants must attend both days)

Time: 9:30am to 4:30pm each day

Venue: Oxfordshire Mind, Witney Resource Centre,Moorland Road,WitneyOX28 6LF

Our courses are free and open to anyone living or working in Oxfordshire with funding from the NHS Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Cluster and Oxfordshire County Council.
