First Aid Training, Mental Health First Aid Training, Health Screening and Health Education in English throughout Switzerland

Our ServicesUpcoming Courses

To raise awareness this Movember, HealthFirst is running our second FREE live webinar event.

Our discussion will focus on how wearing a mask is impacting men’s mental health, not just from the COVID-19 perspective and the mental health pandemic this has ‘unmasked’, but also the mask so many men wear when it comes to being open about their mental health.

It is only by having conversations like these that we can start to make a difference! REGISTER HERE

Welcome to HealthFirst

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the rising numbers of infections and the partial lockdowns in increasing numbers of Cantons, we have taken the decision to move our physical and mental health First Aid training online as much as possible. We believe that we can still deliver excellent training for you in this way. More information about our public online courses can be found here. Please contact us for information about corporate or group training.

HealthFirst provides dynamic First Aid Training, Mental Health First Aid training, Health Promotion activities, tailored Health Screening Assessments and interactive Health Education to individual members of the public, schools and playgroups, sports clubs, businesses and international organisations throughout Switzerland.

We believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to know what to do in a medical emergency. We know that people with some basic knowledge and skills can save lives and reduce the impact of an injury or illness.

Through our ensa Mental Health First Aid training, we teach how to proactively approach a person in mental distress, aiming to offer support before a crisis develops.

We are also passionate about Health Screening and Health Education and we strive to empower people to manage their own health through greater knowledge and understanding.

Our training and education is led by native English-speaking doctors, nurses and midwives.
