Course Summary:

Level 2 Award in First Aid for Mental Health

Mental Health First Aid teaches how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The courses introduce participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health concerns, builds understanding of their impact and provides an overview of common treatments.

This qualification does not have an expiry date but keeping up to date with changes to policies, procedures and new legislation through ongoing CPD is vital.

This qualification is assessed through a written assessment paper and the practical demonstration of the first aid action plan for mental health.
