Supervising First Aid for Mental Health Level 3 is a 2-Day course, which goes into detail on a wide range of conditions and explores the support and help provided by healthcare professionals.
It covers the content of both the Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications but in much more detail across more conditions. It is aimed at the supervisor / manager level within the workplace, or perhaps those who have strategic responsibility for the workplace wellbeing culture or for the provision of first aider resources (Human Resources, Health & Safety, QEHS).
