FAA Level 2 Award in First Aid for Mental Health

Each year approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health condition and at least 1 in 6 employees experience common mental health problems in the workplace. Research has shown that work is the biggest cause of stress which can stop people performing at their best. Mental health conditions are often hidden due to stigma and fear of discrimination and research has shown that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers.

This 6-hour qualification provides learners with the knowledge to recognise a range of mental health conditions, how to start a supportive conversation and when and how to signpost a person to seek appropriate professional help.

Learners will know how to recognise and manage stress and understand the impact of substance abuse. They will learn about the first aid action plan for mental health, be able to put it in place and know how to implement a positive mental health culture in the workplace.

Learners will not diagnose or treat mental health conditions as this can only be carried out by healthcare professionals but will gain the knowledge to identify when a person may have a condition and know where they can go to get help.

The qualification is assessed through a written assessment paper and the practical demonstration of the first aid action plan for mental health. Learners must successfully pass both parts of the assessment to be awarded the qualification.

Learning Outcomes - The learner will:

  • Know what mental health is, why people develop mental health conditions and the role of a First Aider for mental health

  • Know how to provide advice and practical support for a person presenting a mental health condition

  • Know how to recognise and manage stress

  • Know how to recognise a range of mental health conditions

  • Understand the impact of substance abuse on mental health

  • Understand the first aid action plan for mental health and be able to put it in place

  • Know how to implement a positive mental health culture in the workplace
