Mental Health First Aid

Did you know that 1 in 4 people experience mental health issues each year and 15 people each day took their life in 2017?

In the UK, mental ill-health is responsible for 72 million working days lost and costs employers £34.9 billion each year.

Our 2-day Adult Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace course, developed by MHFA England, qualifies your employees as mental health first aiders. Your employees will gain an in-depth understanding of mental health and increase awareness allowing your employees to increase their confidence in supporting people to manage their mental health. We will encourage positive attitude surrounding mental health; explore factors that can affect your mental wellbeing and teach how to intervene and reassure.

Choosing LIVES to supply your Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace course will allow you further your mental health awareness, help someone in need and promote positive mental health in the work pace. You will also help promote LIVES passion for sharing knowledge and increasing awareness and allowing people to speak openly about their mental health. You would care for someone with physical first aid needs, why not mental health needs?
