    Course Includes

    Learners will achieve a Level 1 qualification (Level 4 Scotland) in First Aid Awareness for Mental Health, subject to passing the course assessment criteria. This half-day course is aimed at providing learners with the knowledge to identify suspected mental health conditions and the skills to start a conversation to signpost the person towards professional help.

    Should you attend?

    Each year approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health condition, and at least 1 in 6 employees experience common mental health problems in the workplace. Mental health conditions are often hidden due to stigma and fear of discrimination. The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE’s) guidance refers to mental health in the workplace.

    This course is an ideal introductory platform for those wishing to progress their knowledge of mental health conditions further. It would be suitable as a starting point for mental health first aid champions or for anyone who wants to learn more about mental health issues to support family members and friends.


    The course covers:

    • What is the first aid for mental health
    • Identifying mental health conditions
    • Providing advice and starting a conversation
    • Stress
    • Mental health conditions

    This, in turn, should improve the workplace health and safety culture and result in fewer lost hours due to absence.


    This is delivered in ½ day in the classroom environment.

    Alternatively, the course can now be delivered remotely via Microsoft Teams or a software platform of your choice.

    Exam format

    Ongoing assessment by the tutor, including practical and oral questioning.

    The qualification is valid for three years subject to successful assessment. It is strongly recommended that the learner attends annual refresher training.
