Safer Highways | Free to Members Mental Health Training is Launched
Through an exclusive link-up with the Building Mental Health framework member organisations of Safer Highways are now able to access the Mental Health First Aid Instructor course (normally £2,790) completely free.
Delivered as part of the Road to Better Wellbeing; organisations with their own Mental Health Instructor will now have the ability to become self-sufficient and also to help to deliver life-saving information and guidance to other businesses within their supply chain.
The training takes place over seven days and is usually spread out over six weeks.
This allows candidates to become familiar with the material and reflect on your learning. Candidates have access to a mentor and will need to do about 20 hours of your own study outside of the seven days, including time spent on preparing delivery materials for days 4-5 and 6-7.

Speaking about the announcement, Kevin Robinson, Chief Operating Officer of Safer Highways said,
“Within our organisations, we have all seen the benefits of adopting a proactive attitude and approach to poor mental wellbeing.
“Mental Health, much like Physical Health requires effective training in order that it is dealt with in the correct way. It goes without saying that Mental Health First Aid courses have played a vital part in equipping our people with the skills they require to assist colleagues.
“To be able to offer organisations the ability to train their own instructors so that they may deliver ‘in house’ courses for themselves and their supply chain is another huge step forward.
“Moreover, the ability to offer that instructor training for free to our members was an opportunity we would have been foolish to pass up.”
