Final Examination


Each year approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health condition and at least 1 in 6 employees experience common mental health problems in the workplace. This 4-hour qualification provides learners with the knowledge to recognise a range of mental health conditions, how to start a supportive conversation and when and how to signpost a person to seek appropriate professional help. Learners will know how to recognise and manage stress. Learners will not diagnose or treat mental health conditions are this can only be carried out by Healthcare professionals but will gain the knowledge to identify when a person may have a condition and where they can go to get help. Delivered via distance learning, learners will be provided with a copy of the Instruct UK First Aid for Mental Health manual as their main point of reference, and a Learner Resource sheet which contains links to the PowerPoint presentation, videos and weblinks needed to complete the course. Training will be completed using a combination of virtual classroom and one to one support from the trainer with the course being completed within 2 weeks of the start date. Assessment will take the form of a recorded professional discussion conducted on a one-to-one basis.
