Attend this internationally recognised workplace Mental Health Awareness course and become a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Champion


1 in 6 workers will experience depression, anxiety or stress at any one time and 45% of all working days lost to ill health are due to these conditions. The average cost of mental health related absence is £522 per year for every employee. Creating Mental Health awareness and promotion is therefore a vital element in every successful workplace.
Objectives: You will develop the skills, confidence and knowledge to:

  • Recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health issues
  • Understand anxiety, depression and stress
  • Guide a person to appropriate support and self-help information
  • Challenge stigma and discrimination around mental health
  • Recognise and intervene when someone is having thoughts of suicide
  • Be mindful of your own mental health
  • Talk to someone around their mental health and offer the most appropriate support using the MHFA action plan
  • Build and maintain a mentally healthy workplace
