Mental Health First Aid & Wellness at Work Diploma

In 2018 the health and wellness market in the UK was valued at 23 billion euros (Statista) and it is not showing signs of slowing down. Shifts in attitude surrounding mental wellness are at the forefront of personal and corporate cultures; we are embracing infusing well-being techniques into our daily life.  Corporations and organisations are making staff wellness a top priority and working in partnership with well-being professionals to improve health and well-being in the workplace.

Four out of five businesses have no staff trained in mental health first aid or work related stress. Over 11 million days are lost at work a year because of stress at work (HSE). Employers have a legal duty to protect employees from stress at work and be able to ensure employees have a safe working environment while taking reasonable care to prevent personal injury (mental or physical) that may arise in the workplace.

This accredited two day course covers:

  • What is mental health first aid and why is it important?
  • What is the role of a mental health first aider & Wellness Advocate?
  • The impact of mental health issues in the workplace
  • Stigma and discrimination
  • Promoting a positive work culture
  • Mental health issues – Anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorders, eating disorders, alcohol and drug dependency, panic, fatigue, self-harm, and personality disorders
  • Spotting the triggers and signs of mental health issues
  • Suicide and preventing crisis
  • Raising awareness of the importance of well-being in the workplace
  • Providing support in the forms of listening, reassuring, responding, resources, signposting and treatment right through to recovery
