Mental Health in the Workplace Level 1

Mental Health in the Workplace - Level 1

Course Overview

Our Mental Health in the Workplace Level 1 (VTQ) is a ½ day course designed to give you an awareness of Mental Health issues that can arise in the Workplace. It is designed for all levels of staff. Mental Health awareness is on the rise in all aspects of life, not just at work. It is important that all staff have at least a basic understanding of some of the common mental ill health issues that they or their colleagues could be suffering with. This awareness qualification will provide learners with the knowledge to recognise a range of mental health conditions in the workplace and will assist employees on how to start the process of care and support.
