If you would like to train to become a Mental Health First Aider, you also need to book a level 2 and level 3 course.
Many organisations use this introductory course to raise awareness of workplace mental health across the entire organisation. Some individuals then take further training to become qualified Mental Health First Aiders by also completing the Level 2 and Level 3 courses.
