Now, more than ever, as people return to work or organisational participation following an unprecedented time of flux and upheaval, their mental health is fragile.
Forbes writes on the benefits of a Positive Mental Health Culture:
‘A positive workplace culture improves teamwork, raises the morale, increases productivity and efficiency, and enhances retention of the workforce. Job satisfaction, collaboration, and work performance are all enhanced. And, most importantly, a positive workplace environment reduces stress in employees’
Creating, promoting and maintaining a Positive Mental Health culture within an organisation can be a challenge, but the benefits to everyone within that organisation are huge. Real, Effective First Aid Training will help you set this up, train some of your staff to be First Aiders for Mental Health and provide supporting resources to enable them to give the initial support to anyone suffering.
This ½-Day course is aimed at providing learners with the knowledge to identify suspected mental health conditions and the skills to start a conversation and be able to signpost the person towards professional help.
This 1-Day course covers the content of the Level 1 but also expands on the effects of drugs and alcohol, incorporates the First Aid for Mental Health Action Plan and covers ways in which a positive mental health culture can be supported within a workplace.
This 2-Day course goes into detail on a wide range of mental health conditions and the support and help provided by healthcare professionals. It covers the content of both the Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications but is aimed at management and supervisor level within the workplace.
