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

A nationally recognised, regulated qualification designed to develop your understanding of Mental Health issues in the workplace, as well as how best to support friends, relatives and employees experiencing Mental Health issues. Qualsafe Academy is delivering this qualification to IQA’s who require occupational competence.

Course Overview

Understanding Mental Health in the workplace has never before been so important. Did you know that in 2017/18, 595,000 workers suffered from work-related stress, depression or anxiety and as a result 15.4 million working days were lost? The main factors cited were workload pressures including tight deadlines, too much responsibility and a lack of managerial support. The QA Level 3 Award in Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (RQF) qualification has been designed to help address these issues and provide Learners with the confidence and skills to support employees experiencing poor mental health.

By developing a greater understanding of some Mental Health issues, as well as how best to support and guide someone experiencing these issues, you can help reduce the stigma associated with Mental Health.
