Mental health training helps create mentally healthy workplaces
Businesses that care about good mental health and wellbeing attract and keep staff.
Mentally healthy workplaces are more positive and productive, and get the best out of their team.
The benefits also extend far beyond the workplace, with mental health first aiders able to support family and friends.
What is Mental Health First Aid Training?
The environment where we work, live and play is increasingly important when it comes to ensuring our mental health is nurtured.
Completing a Mental Health First Aid course provides you and your team with the skills and knowledge required to help others who may be developing a mental health issue, having a worsening of a mental health issue, or be in crisis.
Mental Health First Aid training helps:
- improve knowledge of mental illnesses, treatments and first aid actions.
- increase confidence in providing first aid.
- reduce stigma around mental health issues.
- increase the support provided to others.
Mental Health First Aid Training is not just for managers or human resources staff. Yes, managers/supervisors have a responsibility to their teams and there are some people who are naturally drawn to offering support to others, but anyone with an interest in mental health and helping others should look into completing mental health training.
Mental Strides helps people build a culture that supports good mental health by providing professional mental health first aid training. Download our information kit to find out more about our services and the benefits for your business or organisation.
