Mental Health First Aid Training

About Mental Health First Aid Training

2019 Dates are:

7th & 8th May
30th & 31st July
24th & 25th September

Venue: Leonardo Royal Hotel Edinburgh Haymarket, 1 Morrison Link, EH3 8DN

With 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing a mental health challenge each year, there has never been more of a need to ensure your organisation is equipped to support your colleagues. We believe every organisation should have a Mental Health First Aider, in the same way we have a physical first aider.

The course has been developed in association with the awarding organisation First Aid Awards (FAA). Our main aim is to raise the awareness of mental health within the British public and UK workplaces through national qualifications regulated by Ofqual which are listed on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). On completion of the course you will receive the 'FAA Level 3 Award in Supervising First Aid for Mental Health'.
