Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to the present moment, on purpose, non-judgmentally and its cultivation helps people become more aware of the full range of feeling and sensations they are experiencing, and not getting stuck in thought cycles. There is abundant evidence that greater awareness of our experience moment to moment can lead to greater well-being and happiness, and is a protective factor helping people from relapsing into periods of depression and anxiety.
Mental Health First Aid
Many organisation have a First Aider; someone that is on hand to help if someone trips up and breaks a leg, however often there is no one who is confident helping someone who might be experiencing a panic attack or feeling depressed or suicidal. Mental Health First Aid courses are accredited to the Royal Society for Public Health and teach participants how to recognise and respond appropriately to the signs and symptoms of mental and emotional health problems.
