FAA Level 3 Supervising First Aid for Mental HealthDownload PDF
A Mental Health First Aider in the workplace is the ‘go-to person’ for anyone who is experiencing some form of mental health condition i.e. stress, anxiety or depression. This course will also provide the relevant knowledge to identify anyone who is showing signs of ill health i.e. a change in behaviour, body language or character.
The first aider will be there to help guide the person in distress and support where ever necessary and therefore, be able to intervene before it escalates. This course provides a natural progression for those who have previously completed mental health first aid training.
Although it is also designed for those who may not have previously completed training but is particularly tailored to those in a supervisory, managerial or position of leadership. The course will support individuals responsible for implementing a positive working environment and the promotion of good mental health.
Whilst the expiry for this course is 3x years, an annual refresher to remain updated on current knowledge and to support your ongoing confidence is recommended. See here for more details!
