Course Overview

The Level 2 Award in Mental Health Awareness provides individuals with knowledge of key mental health issues such as stress, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders, and depression, with an emphasis on workplace scenarios.

Participants will improve their communication skills, learn the value of active listening, understand how to support their peers, and know when to seek immediate assistance.

The course lasts one day, with the entire qualification process taking seven hours and must be completed within three weeks.

During these seven hours, participants will participate in guided learning sessions led by an expert trainer, with a focus on understanding mental health issues that may arise in the workplace.

There is no expectation that participants will conduct any additional self-study beyond the hours spent in training.

Entry Requirements

This course is open to individuals aged 16 and up who want to become mental health first aiders. It is ideal for those with a strong interest in mental health and a desire to assist colleagues in complying with applicable laws and guidelines.

Assessment Methods

The Level 2 Award in Mental Health Awareness is assessed through a multiple-choice examination. Candidates are given 25 minutes to complete the test and must answer all questions. A score of 10 out of 15 or higher is considered a pass.
