This four-hour awareness course is suitable for everyone as it equips learners with the required knowledge to recognise a suspected mental health condition. It also teaches you the skills to start a conversation and be able to signpost a person towards professional help. It’s a great stepping stone into other courses such as First Aid for Mental Health.
The course programme covers:
What is First Aid for Mental Health?
Identifying mental health conditions
Providing advice and starting a conversation
The qualification is assessed through a multiple-choice question paper. A Level 1 Award in Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health will be issued to the learner, subject to successful assessment. No external assessors are required.
Upon successful completion of the assessment process, all candidates will be awarded the relevant level Ofqual regulated RQF/SCQF qualification based on the course they have completed. Each qualification is valid for three years from the date of achievement. We strongly recommended that each learner attends an annual refresher training and complete the full course again to requalify for a further three years.
