Mental Health First aid Full day course

What is it about?

The one day First Aid for Mental Health course is a fantastic way to develop you or your managers skills in understanding the challenges and topics surrounding Mental Health at work.

 

With 1 in 6 to 1 in 4 people in the UK experiencing mental health challenges and organisations reporting a loss in man hours of over £1000 per head per year through mental health related issues it is important that your organisation understands the best way to handle this in a positive and constructive way.
