  • Mental health and wellbeing is no longer something that is reserved for employees private lives and the stigma around conditions including depression and anxiety is being shed away, thanks to increased awareness and a better professional understanding. Presently, those who suffer from such mental health issues are likely to be fraught at the thought of going back to work, dealing with the pandemic aftermath and all the changes that are necessary as a result.

    The Course

    • Spot early signs of a possible mental health issue
    • Offer and provide initial help to these people
    • Preserve life where a person may be at risk to themselves or others
