Mental Health First Aid

CPD and Gatehouse Awards Approved

Around 25 per cent of the UK population will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives. Most are mild, tend to be short-term and are usually treated successfully with therapy and medication.

But it is still a significant problem. Mental Health First Aid teaches participants how to notice and support individuals who may be experiencing mental health issues or exhibiting the signs of substance use in a work environment. They are also taught how to connect those people with appropriate help from fellow employees, community resources or healthcare professionals.

This online Mental Health First Aid E-learning course introduces the subject and outlines the benefits of Mental Health first aid and workplace wellness schemes. The Mental Health First Aid online course covers the effects of stress on individuals and teams and discusses how stress and mental health are linked. The course then covers the roles of employers, managers and employees in ensuring that a Mental Health First Aid programme is successful.

The Mental Health First Aid E-Learning course concludes with a series of practical examples of how to apply mental health first aid to real situations, support employees who are experiencing mental health issues and where to point them for further help and advice.
