Southwest now offers a wide range of mental health first aid training including the Understanding Mental Health in the Workplace for Managers to support organisations. Our training is delivered by 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 up 45 billion pounds every year through lack of productivity and absence.
