With around 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing mental health issues, having trained mental health first aiders is essential for any workplace. Run by Mental Health First Aid England certified trainers, our mental health first aid (MHFA) course equips you to recognise the warning signs of mental ill health. In addition, it helps you develop the skills and confidence to provide first aid and mental health support at work for people experiencing a mental health problem.The one day course qualifies you as an adult MHFA champion and the more in depth two day course qualifies you as an adult mental health first aider.
Mental health problems are all too common in the workplace. By opening up the conversation on mental health, we aim to challenge the stigma and create a positive culture around mental health in the workplace. Our mental health awareness workshop is designed to raise awareness. As a result, employees will be able to recognise the signs of mental health issues, learn coping strategies for themselves and gain confidence to support others.
Our second workshop on mental health awareness is aimed towards anyone who has management responsibilities. By training managers to understand mental health issues that may arise and how to approach them, they can provide mental health support at work for their team members.
