First Aid for Mental Health

It is a scary fact that 1 in 4 people suffer a mental health issue at some point in their life in the UK and 1 in 6 experience mental health problems in the workplace.

Businesses have a duty of care to support their teams with regard to mental health and we run three different Ofqual regulated courses to support with this.

Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health (Level 1 award)
A half day awareness course designed for all personnel within a business giving participants an insight into mental health and mental wellbeing and an understanding in what to look out for with specific illnesses. 
First Aid for Mental Health (Level 2 award)
A one day course, designed to be the next step on from awareness. This course offers the same elements as the awareness course but also discusses the strategies and action plans that should be put in place within businesses along with ways to implement a positive mental health culture in the workplace. 
Supervising First Aid for Mental Health (Level 3 award)
A two day course, going into detail on all things mental health first aid. In addition to the level 2 syllabus we go in depth on a number of mental health conditions giving the participants a greater understanding of a variety of areas.

What we cover:

What is mental health?

Understanding stigma

Understand the characteristics and signs & symptoms of different mental health conditions

How to advice someone with a suspected mental health condition

Ways to manage stress

Putting a first aid action plan in place for mental health

Providing a positive mental health culture in the workplace

Knowing when to call the emergency services

Courses:

Courses are available both online and in person. 

If in person, you will need to provide a room with a presentation screen which is big enough for the group to break out into groups with each other. 

We are able to run this course for a company / team at a venue of your choice in the Southeast of England (maximum 16 persons). 

Costs
