WHO IS IT FOR?
It is suitable for everyone in the organisation as it gives learners the skills and knowledge to recognise signs of a mental health condition, how to start conversations and how to signpost to an appropriate medical professional. This course is particularly useful for team leaders who wish to develop a greater understanding of how to provide support for workplace mental health issues and to help them to understand the role of the Mental Health First Aider in their team.
This course is currently run virtually with a real trainer via Zoom.

If you would like to train to become a Mental Health First Aider, you also need to book a level 1 and level 3 course.
Many organisations use this course to raise awareness of workplace mental health amongst team leaders and to help them to start developing a proactive action plan for mental health. Some individuals then take further training to become qualified Mental Health First Aiders by also completing the Level 3 course.
