Mental Health First Aid training for your organisation
Every year millions of working days are lost to mental ill health. The most common reasons are anxiety, stress and depression.
Protecting the mental health of your workforce is as important as protecting their physical health.
Shaw Trust’s Mental Health First Aid Training allows your organisation to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions early and provide help, support and relevant signage to support services.
This is a certified course delivered by a quality assured instructor, who has attended the seven day instructor training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health.
Who should book onto the course?
This course is for anybody who comes into contact with the public, who may potentially come into contact with someone experiencing a Mental Health Crisis and unsure how to respond. It is a valuable course for everybody, in particularly those who work with vulnerable adults and for employers who have concerns about the wellbeing of their staff.
By attending this course you will not be a trained therapist but you will be a Mental Health First Aider.
