Why should I attend?


​Learners undertaking this course will be considered first aiders for mental health and will be a point of contact within the workplace to help and support those with a suspected mental health condition. Building on the Level 1/4 Award in Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health, this course introduces the First Aid for Mental Health Action Plan, which allows learners to provide their peers with comprehensive guidance and support for a suspected mental health condition.


​Topics covered in First Aid for Mental Health:


What is first aid for mental health?

Identifying mental health conditions

Providing advice and starting a conversation

Drugs and alcohol

First aid for mental health action plan

First aid for mental health in the workplace


​Assessment and Certification


​Upon successful completion of the qualification assessment, learners will be awarded the Ofqual-regulated Level 2 award in First Aid for Mental Health (RQF) / Award in First Aid for Mental Health at SCQF Level 5. It is strongly recommended that the learner attend annual refresher training. The learner will need to complete the full course again to qualify for another three years. Upon successful completion, you will receive a Workplace Mental Health Awareness Certificate, which is valid for three years from the date of achievement.


The qualification is assessed through both a practical demonstration of the First Aid for Mental Health Action Plan and a multiple-choice question paper. No external assessors are required.


​In-house/on-site courses


​If you have several employees that you wish to train in first aid for mental health, then on-site training would be perfect for you. For this course, the maximum is 12 delegates per instructor.
