At any one time one worker in six will be experiencing depression, anxiety or issues relating to stress.
Mental health issues cost employers nearly £26 billion each year- equivalent to £1,035 for every employee in the UK workforce.
We deliver a range of accredited Mental Health First Aid courses across the UK that can help reduce mental health-related sickness within your organisation and create a mentally healthy workplace.
Mental Health First Aid England is the national licensed organisation for MHFA training. We only employ instructors approved by MHFA England.
Our company delivers recruitment services to the construction industry and works mainly with freelance contractors.
We carried out a wellbeing survey of our contractors in October 2018 and feedback indicated that they needed more support on site. In response to the feedback we engaged Al from Great Minds At Work to train up 8 of our front line staff as Mental Health First Aiders.
We undertook the two day MHFA course and the training we received from Al was superb. Al is extremely knowledgeable about the subject and can deliver training on difficult subjects in a sensitive and understanding manner. He was able to fully engage our staff and provide them with the confidence to talk about mental health when the need may arise.
Thank you Al for opening our minds!"
