Mental Health First Aid
What are Mental Health First Aid Courses?
Mental Health First Aid Courses or MHFA teaches people to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health crisis or issue. At Great Minds At Work, we offer four MHFA courses:
- Mental Health First Aid
- Mental Health Champions
- Mental Health Aware
- Mental Health First Aid Refresher
Why your workplace needs MHFA
Adult mental health issues in the workplace are continuing to grow. In fact, one in six workers are experiencing mental health issues such as depression, anxiety or stress. Which is why MHFA Training Courses are currently so vital. Mental Health First Aid Training Courses offer employees an in-depth understanding of mental health and wellbeing.
MHFA Courses provide delegates and organisations with the key information, confidence and practical skills to spot the early signs of mental health issues. Our Courses also enhance interpersonal skills that help first aiders offer their support in the workplace.
Mental ill-health costs UK employers between £42 – £45 billion each year. But having a qualified in-house Mental Health First Aider can aid early intervention, improving the mental wellbeing of your staff and reducing these losses. Equally, positive mental health in the workplace can improve workplace productivity.
