Mental Health First Aid Workshop


Friday 4th October 09:30-13:30

We know that mental health problems can isolate people from the world and can be very difficult to talk about. Through specialist mental health awareness training and mental health first aid we want to make sports clubs, leisure centres and physical activity sessions places where people suffering from mental health issues can feel comfortable asking for help and advice.

Venue: Bedford Central Library, Harpur Street, Bedford, MK40 1PG
