Our Mental Health Training and Support is something we are extremely proud of.

Our training is designed to bridge the gap between the Mental Health First Aid qualification and allowing an understanding and awareness for everyone regarding mental health.

We believe by offering this range of training, it is the only way that we will help change the narrative, end stigma, and allow people to be more open around the topic of mental health, no matter where they may feel they are on that sliding scale.

We also know that this training and support will equip people to have the confidence in starting conversations with others, without the fearย of making a situation worse or not knowing what to say or do should they need to get help for the person.

The training, at any level will give people an understanding of mental health, think about how we all have mental health and what we need to do to protect thisย andย give learners the opportunity to think aboutย what we can do to prevent poor mental health.

The training consists of the following 3 qualifications:
Level 3 Award in Mental Health First Aidย (RQF)

Throughout this 2-day course, learners will develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to actively promote positive mental health in the workplace by covering a range of topics, including: understanding mental health and its importance, awareness of their own wellbeing as a Mental Health First Aider, common mental health conditions, how to support those experiencing poor mental health at work with tools such as active listening and non-judgemental support.

Whatโ€™s covered on the course

  • Learn how to spot the signs and support people that are struggling with a wide range of mental health conditions, including:
  • Depression
  • Suicide
  • Anxiety Disorders (including OCD, Panic Disorder, Phobias, Social Anxiety, Separation Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder and PTSD)
  • Eating Disorders
  • Psychosis
  • Self-Injury


  • We look at each condition in detail and hear from people that have real lived experience of some of these conditions, which gives learners a deep understanding of what someone experiencing symptoms may be experiencing.
  • Understand and learn about the symptoms a person may be experiencing, what to say and how to support an individual in the best way for them.
  • The mental health continuum and the differences between mental health and mental illness, and the judgment and discrimination that is often felt around this topic due to stigma and lack of understanding.
  • Risk and Protective factors to our mental health and learn how to implement health habits and coping techniques, including self-care.
  • Stress and how to recognise, manage and cope with stress โ€“ this is a very important part of the course as stress is always present in any mental health condition, whether itโ€™s the cause, a symptom or both.
  • Case Studies looking at scenarios and what we can do to help, what to say and where to access and signpost to the correct support, along with how to provide ongoing support.
  • Where and how to access support and different types of support that are available.
  • Recovery and Wellbeing Recovery Action Plans

This 2-day course is packed full of useful, helpful and lifesaving information to help others and yourself.
