Practical mental health skills and awareness training delivered online

Online Mental Health First Aid course

The COVID-19 global health pandemic is likely to have had a huge impact on the mental health of your employees.  Social distancing measures mean workplaces are changing, and with many employees still working remotely, there are likely to be emotional challenges and increased stress levels as your workforce adapts to the ‘new normal’.

The Online Mental Health First Aid course is a practical skills and awareness course designed to equip learners and leaders with the skills and confidence to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues, and provide support and signposting to self-help, or professional services.

It delivers the same evidence-based learning outcomes of the popular ‘face-to-face’ Adult MHFA Two Day course, delivered in an accessible and flexible online format.

  • Develop practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Gain confidence to support and reassure an employee in distress
  • Guide your team through recovery and beyond
  • Embed a sustainable positive culture across your whole organisation, whether remotely on on-site where employees recognise their mental and physical health are supported as equal parts of the whole person
  • Get certified as Mental Health First Aiders
