Understanding Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace
(Level 2 Award)

One Day Course

Course Overview

Did you know that 1 in 4 people in the UK are likely to experience mental health problems each year?

Mental health is just as important as physical health, yet whilst we know how to take care of our own physical health, many people do not know how to support friends, relatives or even colleagues who are experiencing poor mental health. By developing a greater understanding of common mental health conditions, as well as how best to support and guide someone to professional help, you can help to reduce the stigma associated with mental health in the UK.

The Level 2 Award, Understanding Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace, qualification has been designed to provide learners with a greater understanding of the importance of positive mental health and wellbeing in the workplace and the role that everyone plays in recognising and handling mental health issues at work.

What's Covered?

As a learner, you will develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to actively promote positive mental health within your own workplace.
