Workplace Mental Health Training West Midlands
Become a Mental Health First Aider at Work
We are often quite good at looking after our physical health but unfortunately, many of us are not so good at looking after our mental health and those around us. Mental health issues can affect anyone regardless of age, gender and background. It can have a massive impact on someone’s personal life and work life and often results in them having to have a considerable amount of time off work.
As an employer, it is in your interest to look after the mental health of your staff. Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society. Mental ill health is responsible for 70 million working days lost every year. You may find these figures astounding but the sad truth is that if we do not act now, then they are likely to rise even more.
At Stella Mind we offer a Two-Day Workplace Mental Health First Aid Training Course in the West Midlands and surrounding areas. This course is aimed at staff of all levels within a business who would like to become a Mental Health First Aider. During the duration of the course you will find out more about what mental health is and the impacts it can have. You will find out how to look out for signs of mental health issues and what you need to do to support and help other members of staff. This course is vital in teaching you how to listen in a non-judgemental way and what to do if a situation arises such as a suicidal crisis.
We also offer a One-day Mental Health First Aid Champions Course which will equip all line managers with the skills and confidence to spot when someone on their team is struggling, and to know when and how to offer support.
