You've trained up physical first aiders, isn't it time for a mental health first aider, too?
This in-depth training is designed to raise the awareness of mental health in the workplace, reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues and teach attendees how to have confidence in conversations with those in need of support. This course has been developed by Mental Health First Aid England and is internationally recognised and accredited.
The course is designed for anyone and you do not need to have any prior knowledge before attending.
An employee who holds this qualification could make a positive difference in the workplace and an ambassador for positive mental health. Although the courses do not teach people to be therapists, counsellors or how to diagnose a mental health condition, introducing a Mental Health First Aider could act as a point of contact and reassurance for a person who may be experiencing a mental health issue or emotional distress.
