Mental Health Training Courses.

The Stevenson / Farmer review of mental health and employers concluded that the UK faces a significant mental health challenge. It is estimated that 1 in 4 individuals are likely to experience mental ill-health at some point in their lives, and that around 300,000 people with long-term mental health problems lose their jobs each year (much higher than those with physical health conditions). In addition to this, 15% of people at work have symptoms of an existing mental health condition.

The cost of poor mental health to the economy and the NHS combined is estimated to be between a £74 - £99 billion each year.

In order to help organisations address this, we are pleased to be able to offer a range of regulated mental health qualifications that are intended to raise awareness of mental health to support employers and employees to engage with the topic, and create a positive wellness culture in the workplace.


The Mental Health Qualificaitons currently available are:

Level 2 Award in Introduction to Mental Health Awareness (RQF)

This knowledge-only qualification can be taken by learners preparing to enter employment or by those who are already in employment and wish to develop their knowledge of mental health awareness.

Level 2 Award in Introduction to First Aid for Mental Health (RQF)

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. Find out how on this great course.

Level 3 Award in Understanding Mental Health in the Workplace for Managers (RQF)

The management role involves supporting employees who may present with mental ill health in the workplace and this qualification provides an understanding of the basic principles relating to supporting mental health in the workplace and promoting a positive, ‘wellness at work’ culture.
