Event Details

The role of a first aider for mental health is to provide basic mental health support or to be the first response to someone in need, usually in the workplace. The first aider for mental health is not clinically qualified to assess, diagnose or treat mental ill health but they will know the basic tools to listen to individuals who require first response support for their mental health. This qualification can be taken by learners preparing to enter employment or by those who are already in employment. This is a knowledge-only qualification that provides underpinning knowledge and understanding in relation to the principles of first aid for mental health, recognising mental ill health in self and others, supporting mental wellbeing in the workplace, understanding how to promote a wellness culture in the workplace and the importance of resilience and self-care for first aiders for mental health.

This mental health first aid qualification is assessed through completion of an open-response learner workbook which will be assessed and internally quality assured by the centre.
