First Aid for Mental Health Training

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.

Really informative, non-judgemental and safe environment provided by Gwion to talk about such personal experiences.

All courses now include a COVID-safe module which safeguards all of your First Aiders and makes them completely up to date with the latest guidance around coronavirus, how it spreads and how to reduce the risks to all involved.
