Mental health first aid courses onsite at your premises

We deliver accredited mental health first aid (MHFA) courses onsite at your premises or venue of choice, wherever you are in the world.  Beforehand, we like to get to know your organisation and understand the working culture.  In doing so, we can better tailor sessions to your environment. 

Our Trainer’s expertly guide learners through the MHFA syllabus.  We unlock skills and competences.  Learners become more mindful of the stigma attached to mental health and the challenges of this within their workplace and society.  They will become confident in identifying and helping a colleague in need.  They’ll be a valuable asset contributing to the health and wellbeing of the organisation.

Following successful completion of the course, learners will be awarded an Ofqual-regulated qualification with a certificate issued.

The cost of wellbeing in the workplace

According to the Centre for Mental Health 2017 figures, mental ill health cost UK employers a staggering £34.9 billion.

Broken down, employers are effected by reduced productivity, sickness absence and staff turnover.  Stress, anxiety and depression are the common conditions and cause of sickness absence in the workplace. 

This supports the notion that the cost of neglecting mental health wellbeing is detrimental to employees and the business itself.

By creating an environment that promotes openness and channels for employees to share their feelings and seek help, this will have a positive impact on individuals wellbeing and the health of the organisation.

What is mental health first aid?

Mental health first aid (MHFA) is offering initial support to a person developing a mental health problem, experiencing a crisis or worsening of an existing mental health condition.

MHFA training gives learners the skills to identify symptoms of mental health issues.  Learners are taught how to approach and offer initial help, and guide the person towards the appropriate support they need.

Our MHFA courses help people become good listeners who can reassure and respond accordingly, and put an action plan in place where necessary.  The courses are not designed to make or qualify you as a therapist.  Just like traditional first aid, the aim is to give people the confidence and know-how to offer support until professional help is received.
