Free Mental health first aid course
John Lewis, TSF Operations Manager has sent a link to free Mental Health courses in England, funding being subject to candidates meeting requirements.
This follows a discussion in the last association secretaries meeting, where interest in obtaining such training was expressed.
John has provided the following link should you or anyone you know be interested.
Is the course Free?
If you meet the eligibility criteria then YES!
In this free course you will learn about different types of mental ill health and how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses.
You will explore mentally healthy environments, develop wellness action plans and discover how to protect your own mental health.
Free Courses in England connect you with learning providers that use government funding, in the form of the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and the Adult Educational Budget (AEB).
As an aside a quick look at the above site also references other free courses not just the one John has kindly highlighted, so this also might be worth a look.
