Mental health first aid

Train on a voluntary basis ER volunteers in mental health first aid to try to identify benefisaries & others at scenes who may be in or near a personal crisis & try to keep them safe until they can be handed over to professionals or other responsible person eg family member.

In could be self funding as it could be offered as an add on to EFA when tendering for event work as a pastoral care right through to full blown crisis for people at large EFA events. I have been able to use my own mental health issues to identify other people at scenes who were in need of pastoral care at a higher level than is normally required. This kindness may be attractive to other 999 services & other responders at events/scenes thereby increasing BRC's reach
