Mental Health First Aid at Work
Did you know that 1 in 4 people in the UK are likely to experience mental health problems yearly?
Mental Health is just as important as physical health, yet whilst we know how to take care of our own physical health, many people do not know how to support friends, relatives or colleagues who are experiencing poor mental health.
By developing a great understanding of common mental health conditions, as well as how best to support and guide someone to professional help, you can help to reduce the stigma associated with mental health in the UK.
What's It About?
This two-day Mental Health First Aid course aims to give you the knowledge and confidence to identify signs of mental health problems in the workplace and to qualify you as a Mental Health First Aider.
The qualification will provide you with the skills to identify those who require mental health support and the confidence to offer assistance when required.
The knowledge and tools gained will enable you to deliver Mental Health First Aid before professional medical treatment is available.
What Will You Gain?
By attending this course, you will understand the roles and responsibilities of a qualified Mental Health First Aider and the legal requirements for mental health in the workplace.
On returning to the workplace, as a Mental Health First Aider, you will feel confident as a first responder in crisis situations and know how to guide someone towards appropriate support.
Who Should Attend?
This course is ideal for line managers, supervisors, heads of departments and those who work within a human resources department.
It is the most suitable course for anyone who wishes to become a Mental Health First Aider in their workplace.
If you just want to understand a bit more about Mental Health, the course you need is the QA Level 2 Award in Understanding Mental Health in the Workplace.
Why’s It Important?
Did you know that almost 37% of all work-related ill-health cases are linked to depression, anxiety or stress, and perhaps even more striking is that 95% of staff say their organisation is unhelpful when managing mental health.
A Deloitte report stated, “On average, for every £1 spent on supporting employees’ mental health in the workplace, employers get between £5 and £8 back on their investment.”
The mental health industry has been stigmatised for many years, but it’s time to change that. Businesses are taking steps to raise awareness and providing training on how they can help their employees face these illnesses with proactive measures!
