Mental Health First Aid Training

Announcing our new mental health first aid training series, certified by MHFA England, and in association and partnership with Winning Edges.

Mental health issues are a normal part of life. In any one year approximately one in four people experience at least one diagnosable mental health issue, and the World Health Organisation forecasts that by 2030 depression will be the leading cause of the global burden of disease.

Educating people about mental health helps to reduce the stigma around mental ill health and in turn increases people’s willingness to talk about wellbeing in a positive framework.

Mental Health is also becoming a priority in the workplace. Employers are increasingly concerned with absenteeism, presenteeism and productivity loss due to mental ill health.

We know that stressful working environments and a wide range of factors outside of work can impact a person’s wellbeing but few managers or businesses feel truly equipped to balance such pressures by supporting the mental health needs of staff directly.

With increased demands on employees to meet rapidly changing business challenges, it is more vital than ever that we invest in staff wellbeing.
