We worked in partnership with Yorkshire Sport Foundation to deliver a non-regulated Level 1 Award in Awareness of First Aid for Mental Health course. The course seeks to support learners to acquire the knowledge to identify suspected mental health conditions and the skills to start a conversation and be able to signpost the person towards professional help. The course was delivered virtually via an online classroom.
Yorkshire Sport had recently recruited a number of community champions to work within their priority places and this is an area of development that many of them were looking to improve their knowledge and skill set, to give them the confidence to support their peers within the communities they live and work in Colleagues from neighbouring Active Partnerships were also invited as part of the collaboration work through the Mind Regional Network.
The course was a huge success and we received positive feedback from those that attended:
“Very interesting and useful content”
“The tutoring of the course was excellent. Workshop content was just right, not too much of an information overload and was relevant to the course”
