Investing in employee wellbeing is essential to creating a positive office culture where staff can thrive and in turn, drive growth within your business.
Equipping your workforce with stress management techniques leads to more engaged, responsive and happier employees. Mindfulness is an evidence-based tool used to effectively manage stress and anxiety.
Mental Health First Aid Training - Qualified trainer through MHFA
MHFA training courses teach people to spot the signs of mental health issues, offer initial help and guide a person towards support. This training teaches people to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis - and even potentially reach out to someone before a crisis happens.
Becoming a Mental Health First Aider, whether for personal or professional reasons, gives you these valuable skills:
Build employees’ confidence to have open conversations around mental health and reduce the stigma
Encourage people to access the support they need earlier, to help promote 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
Become a certified Mental Health First Aider
Learn how to identify, understand, and help somebody experiencing a mental health challenge.
Mental Health First Aid is an accredited, evidence-based course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help a person who may be developing a mental health issue.
In the same way as we learn physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid enables you to recognise those early warning signs of mental ill health and offer that crucial initial support.

Spot the early signs of a mental health problem
Feel confident helping someone experiencing a mental health problem
Provide help on a first aid basis
Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others
Help stop a mental illness from getting worse
Help someone recover faster
Guide someone towards the right support
Reduce the stigma of mental health problems
The MHFA Standard course usually takes place over 2 full days.
At the end of the course…
You'll receive a MHFA Standard manual that you can take away with you and also an attendance certificate from MHFA England to say you are now Mental Health First Aider.
