WELCOME

Hello and welcome.

FAA First Aid for Mental Health Level 2 Awards are regulated and accredited by SQA in Scotland and Ofqual in England, providing a recognised qualification.

Remote learning ensures that delegates can learn where they are, saving time and allowing for flexibility. It encourages networking and new links, and in addition supports core skills and confidence with video conferencing technology.

Book individual places on scheduled Level 2 online blended learning courses at £110 pp HERE

If you have 5 or more delegates, a commissioned course may be more valuable and cost-effective for you, with potential savings of up to 50%.  A group package of remote learning costs £1160 for the maximum of 20 participants - equivalent to just £58 pp, down to the basic cost of £485 for 5 participants.

Mental Health First Aid

***03/09/21 Update about SMHFA, click learn more*** There is no health without mental health. There is no us and them. All of us experience ups and downs with our mental health and recently this has impacted on our daily life and wellbeing more than ever. In fact, more than 1 in 4 of us will have a diagnosable mental health condition at some point, and 82% of adults have experienced stress as a result of the pandemic. We can do something about this!
