Mental Health First Aid Training

During May 2022, the Community Impact Initiative staff team took part in Mental Health First Aid Training, delivered by Mind in Cardiff.

This two day training course provided our staff with:

  • An in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing

  • Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues

  • Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress

  • Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening

  • Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to further support – whether that’s self-help resources, through their employer, the NHS, or a mix

A huge thank you to Rob and Ed at Cardiff Mind for the sessions. We’ve learnt a lot and are feeling confident to put what we’ve learnt into practice.
(We urge everyone to do the training – it’s well worth it.)
