Mental Health First Aid

A Mental Health First-Aider’s (MHFA) role is to act as a point of contact and reassurance for a person who may be experiencing a mental health issue or emotional distress in the workplace. In the same way we learn physical First Aid, Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill-health.

Mental ill-health is costing a total of £105 billion each year (with employers footing £39.4 billion of that total). 1 in 4 working-age adults developing symptoms and with mental health now being the number one cause of absence in the workplace - it is time to put mental and physical first aid on an equal footing.

Our Mental Health First Aid course is educational, teaching people how to identify, understand and help a person who may have a mental health issue. Specifically designed to support individuals in dealing with ‘crises’ situations, this session offers participants the confidence, knowledge and understanding of mental health problems so they can support and guide colleagues appropriately.

Certified by Mental Health First Aid England, this workshop is delivered by approved expert trainers with 20+ years’ experience in the field. Every employee who completes the course will become a qualified mental health first aider and earn a certificate from MHFA England.

Helping you to achieve organisational growth through cultural change, leadership development and effective people management. Resulting in: A healthier place to work and becoming more efficient and productive.

We run courses in Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and now London.
