Understanding Mental Health in the Workplace (Level 2 RQF)

Throughout this 1 day course, learners will develop an understanding on the importance of positive mental health and wellbeing in the workplace and the role that everyone plays in recognising mental health issues at work.

Understanding Mental Health in the Workplace (Level 2 RQF)is a regulated, nationally recognised qualification specifically designed to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of common mental health conditions and how best to offer support and guidance to colleagues. During this course, candidates will better understand the importance of positive mental health and well-being in the workplace and the role that everyone plays in recognising and handling mental health issues at work.

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.
