West Lothian Funded First Aid For Mental Health Training Programme

Published: May 29, 2023


EnvironMentalhealth CIC are delighted to offer Funded spaces on our First Aid For Mental Health Training Course to Community Practitioners and Volunteers in the West Lothian area.

The qualification sits on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF).

This 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 and understand the impact of substance abuse. They will learn about the first aid action plan for mental health, be able to put it in place and know how to implement a positive mental health culture in the workplace.

Learners will not diagnose or treat mental health conditions as this can only be carried out by healthcare professionals but will gain the knowledge to identify when a person may have a condition and know where they can go to get help.

The West Lothian Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund funds these spaces.
