QA Level 3 Award in Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (RQF)

Did you know that 1 in 4 people in the UK are likely to experience a mental health issue each year? Mental health is just as important as physical health, yet whilst we know how to take care of physical health, many people do not know how to support relatives, friends and even colleagues who are experiencing poor mental health.

By developing a greater understanding of common mental health issues, as well as how best to support and guide someone experiencing poor mental health, Mental Health First Aiders play a vital role in reducing the stigma associated with mental health in the UK.
