Mental Health First Aid Training

Since 2011 the UK government has highlighted that there is ‘no health without mental health’ but how much do we really understand about recognising the symptoms and managing mental health effectively? Wellbeing People run three mental health first aid training and awareness courses to help organisations identify symptoms of mental ill health and how to act upon them.

Outcome: Whether you have a wellbeing strategy in place or not these courses are designed to empower organisations to meet the diverse challenges of the workplace with knowledge and confidence.

Mental Health First Aid training

  • Identify the symptoms of mental health issues
  • Offer initial help and guide a person towards the most appropriate support
  • Stop issues arising before they become a crisis
  • Minimise the impact of mental ill health on work and life
  • Proactively manage wellbeing in the workplace

In September 2017 The Mayor of London recommended for Mental Health First Aid training to be adopted across the capital and the government has highlighted Mental Health First Aid training as a “game changer”

Mental ill health costs UK employers £34.9 billion each year, the equivalent of £1,300 for every employee in the UK workforce. This is not only a result of sickness absence, which accounts for £10.6 billion, but includes reduced productivity (£21.2 billion) and replacing staff who leave their jobs for mental health-related reasons (£3.1 billion).
