Our Mental Health First Aid training is brought to you in collaboration with Mental Health First Aid England and Rotherham & Barnsley MIND. Our unique training course includes HR and Managers Resources to take away and implement within your organisation.
Healthy people are happier, more engaged and more productive. Employers across the UK are acting now to support the wellbeing of their people and create mentally healthy businesses.
Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society. Mental ill health is responsible for 91 million working days lost every year.
According to the Centre for Mental Health, simple steps to improve the management of mental health in the workplace will allow employers to save 30% or more of these costs – at least £10 billion a year. This is where we can help.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England training courses teach people to spot the signs of mental health issues, offer initial help and guide a person towards support. We don’t teach people to be therapists, but we do teach people to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
By skilling your organisation in MHFA you can:
- Give your people the tools to keep themselves and their colleagues healthy
- Encourage them to access support when it’s needed, for a faster recovery
- Empower people with a long-term mental health issue or disability to thrive in work
- Stop preventable health issues arising by building a supportive culture around mental health
- Help to embed positive, long term cultural change across your organisation
