A range of topics are covered including:
- What is First Aid for Mental Health?
- Breaking down stigma
- Identifying common mental health conditions
- Signposting to support
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 with to support their learning and take part in group discussions with other candidates.
- Course handbook
- Reminder card and pen
- Hand sanitiser
The group price is based on training at your venue for the maximum number of candidates. If you do not have a suitable training venue, we can work with you to arrange a venue near you at an additional cost.
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 debrief sessions should one of your employees need to use their skills.
Successful candidates will be issued with an Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health certificate from Dewi Development Ltd.
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 16 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 one planned break. 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.
