Level 3 Award in Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace
This Level 2 Award in Safe Moving and Handling is designed to develop learner’s knowledge and skills and confidence to actively promote positive mental health in the workplace.
1 in 4 people in the UK are likely to experience mental health problems each year? Mental health is just as important as physical health, yet whilst we know how to take care of our own physical health, many people do not know how to support relatives, friends and even colleagues who are experiencing poor mental health.
By attending this two-day comprehensive training course learners develop a greater understanding of common mental health issues such as stress, depression anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. As well as how best to support and guide someone experiencing poor mental health.
