Mind Mental Health First Aid Training
Why your workplace needs mind mental health training
Adult mental health issues in the workplace are continuing to grow due to a number of factors. In fact, one in six workers is experiencing a mind or mental health issue such as depression, anxiety or stress. Mental health first aid training courses offer employees an in-depth understanding of mental health and wellbeing. They provide mental health first aiders the key information, confidence and practical skills to spot the early signs of a mental health problem, as well as the enhanced 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, mental positivity in the workplace can improve productivity.
