Course Description

This course goes into detail on a wide range of mental health conditions and the support and help provided by healthcare professionals. It covers the content of both the Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health and First Aid for Mental Health qualifcations but is aimed at Trainer/Assessors and/or supervisor level within the workplace.

Mental Health First Aid gives groups/organisations the practical skills and awareness that is required to build a safe and healthy working environment. Whilst a Mental Health First Aider cannot diagnose or treat someone with a mental health condition, they will have the knowledge on how to start a conversation and where to signpost for professional help. This gives employee’s the opportunity to talk and feel supported, investing in a positive mental health culture for the future.
