Mental Health

While people often know a lot about common physical health problems, there is widespread ignorance of mental health problems. This ignorance adds to stigmatising attitudes and prevents people from seeking help early and seeking the best sort of help. It also prevents people providing appropriate support to colleagues and family members, simply because they do not know how.

Mental health problems affect your organisation

How Mental Health First Aid training can help reduce this cost

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training can increase your employees confidence in dealing with people suffering from mental distress, whether they are work colleagues, friends, family or total strangers. It can give them the confidence and skills to help someone get appropriate help at the earliest opportunity. The earlier someone gets help, the less likely it is that they will suffer a more serious mental health problem.
