Supporting good mental health in your organisation

 

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England training courses teach people to spot the signs of mental health issues, offer initial help and guide a person towards support. We don’t teach people to be therapists, but we do teach people to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially reach out to someone before a crisis happens.

Quality mental health training, underpinned by a robust wellbeing strategy, gives people the tools to keep themselves healthy and support each other. It can also help to:

  • Build employees’ confidence to have open conversations around mental health and break the stigma
  • Encourage people to access support early when needed, for a faster recovery
  • Empower people with a long term mental health issue or disability to thrive in work
  • Promote a mentally healthy environment, stopping preventable issues and allowing people to thrive and become more productive
  • Embed a long term positive culture across the whole organisation, where employees recognise their mental and physical health are supported as equal parts of the whole person
