1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem each year. But do your employees know how to reach out for support?
Our teams spent a few days in May getting their mental health training certificates so they can offer the best support for their colleagues, family and friends.
As a workplace that encourages positivity, wellness, and mental health support – we wanted to take that next step and train up our managers and leaders in MHFA.
Mental health first aid should be as important as physical first aid. Knowing how to support your team and colleagues in their mental health struggles and prevent them from feeling overwhelmed and under-supported is key to a positive workplace culture.
If one of your team members doesn’t seem like themselves, what do you do? What is the right way to go about it?
What do you learn in MHFA training?
- Risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns
- Strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations
- Where to turn for help
Topics that are covered:
- Depression and mood disorders
- Anxiety disorders
- Substance use disorders
Think how you could help people with this knowledge!
MHFA training gives you the confidence and knowledge to spot signs early, improve wellbeing and normalise conversations around mental health in your office and beyond. A mental health first aid action plan can also:
- Approach, assess and assist with any crisis
- Listen non-judgmentally
- Give support and information
- Encourage appropriate professional help
- Encourage other supports
Does your business have a mental health support strategy? Do you support your employees in the best way possible?
