Who is it for?
The provision of appropriate Mental Health First Aid is a requirement for all employers, and is just as important as physical First Aid. Studies have shown time and again, the importance of good mental health in the workplace, both for the sake of individual employees, and for the fiscal health of the business in question. Therefore, we offer comprehensive Mental Health First Aid Training both in house and as open courses. These courses can be taught in person or online via Zoom.
To maintain as safe a training environment as practical all shared training equipment is thoroughly sanitised before each course. When teaching at your premises we will follow your Covid Safety protocols, only requesting that masks and gloves are worn for any close contact exercises. On our open or public courses we do require masks to be worn unless we are made aware of a valid medical exemption in advance. When this is the case, proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test taken in the preceding 24 hours will be required.
The 1-day Understanding Mental Health in the Workplace level 2 Course requires 7 hours of contact time, which can be split into two 3.5 hour sessions within a 4 week period.
There is a multiple-choice question paper at the end of the course.
When taught at your premises we require a minimum separation of 2 metres between candidates when seated. There are some group exercises where this separation can be reduced provided face masks are worn. There is no physical contact on these courses.
If joining a Zoom based course then you will need an appropriate device with sound and a camera. We would strongly recommend that a PC, laptop, iPad or similar is used rather than a smartphone.
