Mental Health in the Workplace - Make it more than a tick-box Exercise

Build awareness, learn the skills and create the foundations of a mental health strategy to enable employee wellbeing

Nobody should be more than one call, one click, or one chat away from help

Why this training is crucial for your organisation :

    On this two-day workshop you will gain insight into mental health, which we all have, as well as mental health conditions, and how they might manifest themselves in the workplace and home. Along with best practice and traps to avoid, you will practise how you as individuals can role-model the most powerful techniques – supportive conversations, non-judgemental listening and self-care.

    You’ll take away a step-by-step framework to give you the building blocks for implementing a strategy in your workplace, with authenticity as a guide. This workshop includes the one-day Mental Health First Aid Champions workshop, endorsed by Public Health England, which will run as per MHFA guidelines to ensure accreditation.
