First Aid Sweden offers two-day training in First Aid for Mental Health. The training is conducted by instructors trained by NASP, National Center for Suicide Research and Prevention of Mental Illness (Nationellt Centrum for Suicidforskning och Prevention.
Most people know that First Aid is about being able to save lives in a life-threatening situation. Just like CPR & first aid in case of acute physical illness, there is a First Aid training for various psychological crisis states, with an action plan. First aid for mental health aims to save lives by increasing knowledge about mental illnesses, suicide attempts and suicide. By taking a number of simple measures in an emergency situation, one can prevent the condition from worsening or improve the chances of recovery.
MHFA (Mental Health First Aid) is carried out on behalf of Socialstyrelsen and NASP.
The training is available with a focus in the following area:
Mental Health First Aid Adults
Mental Health First Aid Youth
Mental Health First Aid Elderly
The goal of the training in first aid for mental health is to increase knowledge about mental illness and mental disorders in order to reduce prejudice and stigmatization. Considering how common it is with mental illness, it is more likely to meet a person with mental problems than to end up in a situation where you get to use your skills in physical lifesaving.
