Highfield Level 2 Award in Introduction to First Aid for Mental Health (RQF): The role of a first aider for mental health is to provide basic mental health support or to be the first response to someone in need, usually in the workplace. The first aider for mental health is not clinically qualified to assess, diagnose or treat mental ill health, but they will know the basic tools to listen to individuals who require first response support for their mental health.
The course is assessed through the completion of a multiple choice examination which is accredited through Highfield Qualifications.
