After running two successful Mental Health First Aid training dates in February of 2019, we’re running another date in June! Having been conceived in Australia in 2000, MHFA made it’s way over to England in 2007 and was launched by the Department of Health as part of a national campaign to improving the mental health of the public. Since then, it has evolved into a global movement and over 2.6 million people have undertaken the appropriate training.
Why Mental Health?
Over the last decade or so, mental health has been a hot topic of discussion and thanks to the rise of social media, more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental illness and breaking the stigma around it. Mental health isn’t a term that only applies to people diagnosed with an extreme condition, it is something that affects everybody in some way and is as important to protect and physical health. With our Mental Health First Aid Course, we hope to raise awareness of the importance of good mental health at work and help companies put in procedures to help those who are struggling.
