SCOTLANDS MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID
The SMHFA course takes 12 hours to complete. It can be presented in a range of formats to suit different groups. The course must be presented by a qualified SMHFA instructor and quality is continuously monitored by NHS Health Scotland.
The following is a brief outline of what is covered on the course:
