Mental Health First Aid

We are delighted to be able to deliver nationally recognised qualifications in Mental Health 1st Aid. Investing in your most valuable asset (your staff) must be a priority for 2023. Cases of anxiety and depression around the world have increased dramatically in 2020, researchers have found an estimated 76m extra cases of anxiety and 53m extra cases of depression than would have been expected had covid not struck.

Programme Overview

We work with organisations to tailor the qualifications to your business needs.  Creating a culture of positive mental well being will fundamentally make your staff feel valued, will reduce absenteeism and healthy staff will ultimately lead to a more  productive and effective team.

We all have mental health.

This programme helps to destigmatise this and provides practical tools to help us all take responsibility for our own mental health and support those around us who may have mental health challenges.

If 1 in 4 people suffer from a mental health condition at some point in their life

(diagnosed by a healthcare professional) what does this mean for your organisation? How can we support them and in turn build a culture of wellness?

We offer three qualifications in First Aid for Mental Health for your business and employees.
