Mental Health First Aid courses from Stockwood Consulting
Every year, one in four people in the UK experience a mental health issue. One in six reports a common mental health problem, such as anxiety and depression, in any given week. In all, mental health-related issues account for more than 12 per cent of the total sick days taken in the UK.
In the light of such statistics, Parliament debated a call in January for the 1981 regulations to be amended so that they provide for mental as well as physical first aid in the workplace.
Everyone can make difference – both employers and employees, with obvious benefits to both. Recognising and supporting staff experiencing mental health issues can make our workplaces better places to be and reduce the amount of time people have off work because of these issues.
Stockwood Consulting offers two courses that can help businesses improve the support they offer employees.
This one-day awareness and skills course qualifies people as Mental Health First Aid Champions. It gives people the knowledge and confidence to provide Mental Health First aid for the most common mental health issues, and an understanding of how to build a mentally healthy workplace, challenge stigma and support positive wellbeing.
