Mental health first aid
in the work place training.
Take the first step to improving mental health in your workplace
First class mental health health training
We offer both the accredited QA Internationally recognised Level 3 Award in Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (RQF), and we also have a dedicated team of MHFA England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland independent instructors that can deliver the MHFA England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland courses.
Mental health first aid training in the workplace
All employers are required legally to provide a recognised first aider in the workplace for physical health. At Red Umbrella, we believe mental ill-health and wellbeing is just as important.
That’s why we provide all the different courses available, International accredited training, MHFA England, Scotlland, Wales, Ireland, as well as bespoke courses tailored for your MHFAider requirements.
By the end of the two day training course your designated member of staff will be able to say they are an accredited mental health first aider.
In combination with our experience and services, your valued employees will benefit from:
- An increased knowledge and understanding of mental health
- Support through from our expert team, in collaboration with your own HR and management
- Industry specific support during the training and in the aftercare support
Combined with our experience and services, your valued employees will be covered from:
- Identification to assessment, diagnosis, appropriate treatment and aftercare.
- All managed under one umbrella hand-in-hand with your HR, Management, Staff and mental health first aider.
- Should you require bespoke training days, please contact our sales team as we also offer training days to specific requirements

We provide mental health awareness sessions for staff to encourage self awareness, with prevention identified as the preferred outcome rather than the cure; as well as clear guidance regarding Red Umbrella’s discreet person centred support framework for staff.

Josie Lazenby Senior Manager – Occupational Health & Wellbeing – Virgin Atlantic Airways Ltd
Red Umbrella recently provided MHFA training for a number of team leaders and managers across our Charity. The training enabled a number of our staff to really develop their understanding of what mental health is and what factors can affect wellbeing. They have come away with some sound techniques for spotting signs of mental illness and confidence to support others in our workplace.
