Health first aid for the Armed Forces community

Members of the Deptherapy Team took part in a day course run by Richard Castle, one of our Patrons.  Mental Health First Aid for the Armed Forces Community is tailored towards the identification of mental health issues in those we work with on our programmes.

There are four core elements to the programme:

Section One – Mental Health First Aid for the Armed Forces Community

Section Two – Suicide and Depression

Section Three- Self Harm, Eating Disorders and Psychosis

Section Four – Anxiety Disorders which includes TSD

The two really intense days of study were held at Coral Cay’s HQ in Farnham thanks to one of our other Patrons Alistair Cole.

The course will equip the Team to provide even more help and support to our programme members.

First class course, first class board meeting, first class company.  Thanks from all of us to Richard Castle
