Please could you show your support for Mental Health Awareness by passing my contact details on to anyone you know who might be interested.
1 in 4 of your friends, colleagues and family WILL be affected by mental health problems within the space of this year, the majority will not know how and when to get professional help so they can start on the road to recovery.
The stigma associated with mental health problems mean that people do not ask for help soon enough therefore the misery that these people suffer goes on sometimes for years and can be a very distressing time.
Mental Health First Aid is designed to educate people as to the help out there and how to spot the early warning signs of mental illness and what to do when they do.I believe that Mental Health First Aid should be as important as Physical First Aid and be implemented in the workplace.
In my opinion the only way to tackle the stigma and discrimination is to educate everyone whether they suffer from mental ill health or not. The training programme is designed to facilitate discussions and give people the confidence to talk about difficult subjects such as suicide.
Should you or your company require further information or would like one of our consultants to come to your workplace to discuss how you can make businesses more productive and the mental health needs of your workforce please do get in touch. This training can qualify as a CPD.
