Mental health first aid training

Supporting your team’s mental health is essential for both employers and employees however the universal lack of understanding around mental health can make it difficult to know where to start.

Healix’s mental health first aid training can steer you in the right direction. Our courses help employers to destigmatize mental health conditions in the workplace, providing the right support for each and every member of your team.

What is mental health first aid training?

In the UK, 70 million workdays are lost each year to mental health problems. This not only represents a significant cost to your business, it can also cause huge stress and disruption to your affected employees and those around them.

Mental health first aid training can help you to spot the early warning signs of common mental health issues in your colleagues, giving you the knowledge you need to foster a network of support for those at risk.

We offer a range of mental health training options.

From half-day taster workshops to comprehensive two-day courses, each is designed to raise your awareness of the wide spectrum of mental health issues, helping you to develop the skills needed to support those who may be affected by them.

Prioritising mental health in the workplace

Research has shown that early intervention can enable recovery for some mental health conditions, limiting distress in patients and reducing healthcare costs.

By attending our internationally-recognised training course, you’ll be taking the first steps towards prioritising mental health in your workplace, allowing you to provide help sooner and enable a faster recovery. Our training won’t teach you how to be a therapist, however, it will equip you with the knowledge you need to spot the signs of mental health issues, and the confidence to act on them.

Every company has a first aid officer for physical wellbeing. Make sure your company stands out with a designated person to safeguard mental health as well.
