About The Event

Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental illness each year. In 2016, 15.8 million UK work days were lost due to mental illness.* St John Ambulance is working with Mental Health First Aid England to provide courses which will help raise awareness of mental health, enabling people to support themselves and others to aid recovery. Our courses are designed to cut stigma through education and increase the provision of care for those who have a mental illness.
