This 6-hour Mental Health First Aid course teaches individuals how to identify the most common mental health conditions and the skills that are required to be able to help the individual. You will be introduced to a Mental Health Action Plan, which allows learners to provide their peers with detailed guidance and support when a mental health condition is suspected.

The Level 2 Award in First Aid for Mental Health is ideal for any and all employees within a workplace who are looking to either create or maintain a positive culture in the workplace, as well as in their personal lives. This course is an extension and further expands on the work learned in the three hour Level 1 Award in Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health. To note, you do not have to attend a Mental Health First Aid course prior to undertaking this course.

In order to complete this course, there will be a range of methods used to demonstrate your knowledge, this includes practical real-life scenario examples and questioning. The final examination will be multiple choice and open questions.


Upon successful completion of this course, each delegate will be issued with an Ofqual regulated Level 2 Award in First AId for Mental Health. This certificate will expire three years after the date of completion. However, for this course, annual refresher training is strongly recommended.
