Delivered by DeVA Partner, Teignbridge CVS, this one day mental health awareness and skills course qualifies you as an Mental Health First Aid Champion.

The trainer is Lesley McGhie, who you may already know through our popular Emergency First Aid at Work courses. Through a mix of group activities and discussions, the course is built around a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) action plan.
Everyone who completes the course gets a certificate acknowledging they are an MHFA Champion, a MHFA manual to keep and refer to
whenever they need it, and a copy of the Line Managers' Resource, an invaluable source of advice on how to support an employee
experiencing mental ill health.

  • Ability to spot signs of mental ill health
