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
The 2-day Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace level 3 Course requires 14 hours of contact time. This can be done in two 7 hour sessions or four 3.5 hour sessions within an 8 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.
