Mental Health First Aid
2 Day Course
Mental ill health costs UK Employers an estimated £34.9 billion each year – the equivalent of £1300 for every employee in the UK workforce.
Broken down, that’s £10.6 billion in sickness absence, £21.2 billion in reduced productivity and £3.1 billion in replacing staff who leave their jobs for mental
health related reasons.
SIMPLE steps to improve the management of mental health in the workplace will allow employers to save 30% or more of these costs – at least £10 billion a year.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health and provide help on a first aid basis.
You won’t be taught to be a therapist, but just like physical First Aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis.
Adult MHFA courses are for everyone 16 years upwards. Our courses are delivered by a quality assured instructor whom is trained to keep people safe and supported whilst they learn.
