 Mental Health 'First Aid'

With 1in 4 adults experiencing some form of mental illness in any given year it's hardly surprising that it has now come to the attention of businesses that having staff trained in mental health first aid can have a positive impact on the organisation 

The Thriving at Work review commissioned by the UK government clearly believes that the key and core mental health standards can be implemented quickly by all small, medium and large companies across the UK

Mental Health in the workplace has tended to be a neglected area, paid lip service to by many companies to the detriment of their employees and productivity.

 

Implementation of correct mental health initiatives empowers every part of the organisation; a 'joined up' approach rather than just piece meal training

Our 'First Aider' Training provides the practical skills, knowledge and confidence to your workforce delivered by a mental health professional with more than 21 years experience

The question that may be asked is why would you want training for mental health issues in your organisation?

There are two main answers to that question. One impacts on the other. A workforce that feels cared for and looked after, that is happier, healthier and more engaged are more productive. This ultimately impacts on the bottom line of the business

Mental ill health costs UK business approximately £35 billion in lost sick days, reduced productivity and staff turnover. Mental ill health is most likely of greater detriment to profitable business than physical health and has the potential to present itself as an unseen debilitating element
