Mental Health First Aid is the help given to someone experiencing a mental health problem before professional help is obtained.
Mental Health First Aid does not teach people to be therapists.
However it does teach people to:

Provide initial help
Guide a person towards appropriate professional help
Mental health awareness training supports participants to:
Develop an understanding of what good mental health is
Look at the effect of stress on our mental health
Recognise signs and symptoms at work
Explore what works in terms of treatment and support, including self help materials
Finish by reviewing how we can promote mental well being in the workplace.
