This means you will be able to provide basic mental health support or to be the first response to someone in need.  It’s appropriate for all working sectors and aims to develop knowledge and understanding of mental health issues.

Although the qualification will not allow you to become clinically qualified to assess, diagnose or treat mental ill health, you will have an understanding of the principles of first aid for mental health and know the basic tools to listen to individuals who require first response support for their mental health
