Mental Health First Aid Courses - Coming Soon!

Did you know that 1 in 4 people in the UK are likely to experience mental health problems each year?

 

Mental health is just as important as physical health, yet while we know how to take care of our own physical health, many people do not know how to support friends, relatives or colleagues who are experiencing poor mental health.

 

By developing a greater understanding of common mental health conditions, as well as how best to support and guide someone to professional help, you can help to reduce the stigma associated with mental health in the UK.

 

LW Training Solutions is approved by Qualsafe Awards, an Awarding Organisation recognised by Ofqual to offer these regulated qualifications.
