A two-day training programme to develop participants as workplace mental health champions

About this event

A two-day training programme to develop participants’ understanding of mental health, mental health first aid, and how to deliver mental health training in their organisations to develop colleagues’ skills to support learners.

Offered through the Provider Improvement Fund (PIF) programme, this training course provides a way to develop learning provider staff to become workplace champions and/or trainers and cascade their understanding of mental health and mental health first aid to colleagues.

The training aims to build a deep, detailed understanding of:

• Mental health conditions, including risk factors, treatments and interventions

• Mental health first aid, including how to recognise signs and symptoms, and use appropriate signposting. Also, the training will instruct on how to provide initial help to a person experiencing mental ill health, administer first aid for specific mental health disorders, and promote good mental health.

• The role and responsibilities of the mental health workplace champion.

The two-day Bootcamp will be delivered by AT Skills Ltd and will run on 22nd & 23rd November 2021
