This course builds on the Level 2 in First Aid for Mental Health and provides learners with the knowledge to recognise a wide range of mental health conditions and learn about the support/therapy provided by professional healthcare providers. They will know how to start a supportive conversation and when and how to signpost a person to seek appropriate professional help. Learners will recognise and manage stress and understand the impact of substance abuse.
The course is suitable for all persons within a workplace but is aimed at those who hold a supervisory/managerial level position and who have responsibility for implementing a positive mental health culture and responsibility for First Aid for Mental Health within an organisation.
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.

The qualification is available to learners aged 18 or over.
It may be possible to allocate a reasonable adjustment to a learner who has a disability, medical condition or learning need; learners should contact Cloverleaf Training to discuss. Any reasonable adjustments granted must be in line with the FAA Reasonable Adjustments Policy.
However, due to this being a distance learning qualification and the level of unsupervised learning required, a learner must have the literacy
skills to be able to read and self-learn the reference manual and additional resources.
