Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (Level 3 RQF)

Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (Level 3 RQF) is a regulated, nationally recognised qualification designed to raise awareness of mental health and develop an understanding of how best to support, reassure and signpost colleagues to professional support. Moreover, candidates will develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to promote positive mental health within their workplace, making it an ideal qualification for mental health champions/ first aiders, Human Resources, managers, supervisors and team leaders.

Mental Health is just as important as physical health, yet whilst we know how to take care of our physical health, many people do not know how to support friends, relatives or even colleagues who are experiencing poor mental health by developing a greater understanding of common mental health conditions, as well as how best to support and guide someone to professional help, you can help reduce the stigma associated with mental health in the UK.
