Product Details

Anyone can be affected by a mental health condition either themselves or a family member, friend or colleague.

This course is suitable for everyone but has been designed to help employers to provide a positive mental health culture within the workplace and to provide learners with comprehensive knowledge on a range of the most common mental health conditions and the skills to be able to act should a condition be suspected.

Learners undertaking this course will be considered First Aiders for Mental Health and be a point of contact within the workplace to help and support those with a suspected mental health condition.

Building on the Level 1 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. Learners will be able to provide signposting to professional help and support that person whilst they are receiving professional assistance.

This course also covers the effects of drugs and alcohol and provides learners with the skills and knowledge to assist employers in implementing a positive mental health culture to support employees within a workplace.

A range of topics are covered including:

  • 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

The following mental health conditions are covered:

  • Stress
  • Anixety
  • Depression
  • Self-harm
  • Suicide
  • Eating disorders
  • Psychosis

The course is facilitated through group and class discussion to involve all candidates and to ensure all candidates are grasping the broad topics ready for the assessment.

Candidates can wear clothing that they feel comfortable to support their learning and take part in group discussions with other candidates.

The following is included in the price:

  • Candidate registration fees
  • Certification
  • Course handbook
  • Great instructors

The course includes the First Aid for Mental Health handbook produced by Instructuk Resources Ltd to support the course.

There is no post-course learning for this course.

You can arrange a program of support from Dewi Development Ltd for your staff, this can include ongoing coaching or access to a debrief session. Your staff may wish to access a debrief session following a serious incident at which they utilised their skills and need to discuss the actions they took.

The qualification is assessed through both a practical demonstration of the First Aid for Mental Health Action Plan and a multiple-choice question paper.

Successful candidates will be issued with an Ofqual regulated Level 2 Award in First Aid for Mental Health by the awarding body First Aid Awards (FAA).

Renewal

The qualification lasts for three years and can be renewed by resitting the qualification.

It is recommended you undertake yearly continual professional development, to maintain your knowledge.

We can deliver the training at your venue which has a suitable training room or we can support you in arranging a suitable external venue. Training at your venue can save you costs but at the same time risk your staff being distracted by day to day concerns that arise, which may not be suitable as they approach the assessment.

Locations will require:

  • Room big enough to sit 12 candidates to sit in a horseshoe
  • Tables for group work and assessment at the end of the day
  • Projector and screen with computer connection, however, we can provide a projector with laptop

While we will deliver our courses across the country, we focus on supporting local businesses in south Wales from Cardigan to Haverfordwest, Carmarthen, Swansea, Cardiff and Newport.

The course will have three planned breaks, including lunch. No refreshments are included when delivered at one of your venues, but tea and coffee will be included when delivered at a venue arranged by ourselves.

Candidate Needs

There are no barriers to undertaking the training, but individuals may find the topics may have an emotional impact they were not expecting if they have experienced or know anyone who has experienced one of the topics being covered. The trainers are experienced and will support any candidate who finds them in the situation of needing to debrief a historic situation.

If candidates have any physical or learning needs for the group work or for the assessment, this should be notified as part of the booking.
