Congratulations to our qualified Mental Health First Aiders. The course, run by MHFA England, qualified our attending employees as Mental Health First Aiders. Amongst other things it has given a more in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing and has resulted in us now having 8 Mental Health First Aiders in-house.
Within the 2 week training, a range of practical and theory skills were explored in order to reassure and support a person using the Mental Health First Aid action plan.
Marcus Addison, Managing Director, who also attended the course, said, ‘I found the course really informative and would highly recommend every workplace putting Mental Health First Aiders in place. I am sure it will have made a lasting difference in our people’s knowledge and confidence when dealing with and supporting issues around mental health’.
Thank you to all those employees involved and to our excellent course trainers, Debbie and Andrea. If you would like to attend this course for yourself or organise for your workplace then you can find details on the MHFA England website.
