Course: Level 3 Supervising First Aid for Mental Health
Course Duration: 2 days
This Level 3 course goes into detail on a wide range of mental health conditions for Supervisors in the workplace. Learners will not diagnose or treat mental health conditions as this can only be carried out by healthcare professionals but will gain the knowledge to identify when a person may have a condition and know where they can go to get help.
Each year approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health condition and at least 1 in 6 employees experience common mental health problems in the workplace. Research has shown that work is the biggest cause of stress which can stop people from performing at their best.
Mental health conditions are often hidden due to stigma and fear of discrimination and research has shown that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers.
The HSE guidance ‘First aid needs assessment’ refers to mental health in the workplace.
