We know that Covid 19 has made it difficult to conduct face to face training, so RPS Partnership has partnered with Better Bodies UK to offer the one day Level 2 First Aid for Mental Health by remote means.

Anyone can be affected by a mental health condition either themselves or a family member, friend or colleague. This course is suitable for everyone but has been designed to help employers 
provide a positive mental health culture within the workplace and to provide learners with comprehensive knowledge on a range of the most common mental health conditions and the skills to be able to act should a condition be suspected. 

Learners undertaking this course will be considered First Aiders for Mental Health and be a point of contact within the workplace to help and support those with a suspected mental health condition. Building on the Level 1 Award in Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health this course introduces the First Aid for Mental Health Action Plan which allows learners to provide their peers with comprehensive guidance and support for a suspected mental health condition. Learners will be able to provide signposting to professional help and support that person whilst they are receiving professional assistance

This course also covers the effects of drugs and alcohol and provides learners with the skills and knowledge to assist employers in implementing a positive mental health culture to support employees within a workplace.

We have two teaching Options: 1 day at your premises ( COVI D-19 compliant) or a blended learning solution consisting of home study and 3 x 1hr webinars. Please check out our dates on the flyer for July.
