Southwest now offers a wide range of mental health first aid training including mental health first aid in the workplace course to support organisations. Our training is delivered by an experienced and qualified ‘Mental Health First Aid (MHFA England)’ instructors.
You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill-health and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe. What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.
As an organisation/employer, being mental health aware displays your recognition of the importance of employee wellbeing in the workplace. It can increase morale, teamwork, and communication, lessen absenteeism, lower staff turnover, and as a result, lower recruitment and training costs. In the UK mental ill-health costs employers 30 billion pounds every year through lack of productivity and absence.
