The need for workplace mental health training

Half of employees said they would feel uncomfortable disclosing poor mental health. Just under 3 in 5 (58 per cent) were confident their employer would support them. They didn’t feel comfortable talking about it, don’t want sympathy, and are worried people might think they couldn’t do their job properly. There is still some way to go therefore to reduce the stigma associated with poor mental health. (Mind Index Insights 2020/21)

Feedback from delegates on my MHFA courses

Such a valuable experience that I would recommend to everyone - not only to equip you with the skills to administer mental health first aid but as a learning tool for yourself to teach mindfulness for your own mental health.'  RADA March 22

'Thoroughly informative, useful and interesting. The instructor was kind, patient and very knowledgeable. The activities were helpful and the feedback sessions were open and supportive. I would really recommend this for everyone and anyone. It’s explained in a simple enough way for people who have no experience of mental health discussions but complex enough to give an insight into being effective.'  GDST March 22

'I have studied counselling previously however did very little on suicide, the course provided me with valuable information and has given me more confidence should I be faced with certain situations.' RADA June 22

'The highly discursive and interactive style of the course course was excellent. The facilitator was insightful, patient and extremely empathetic.'  RADA July 22

'Absolutely fantastic level of training and support, I feel genuinely grateful for the opportunity and would recommend the course and the specific trainer' RADA March 22

'I've already employed what I've learned in situations in my life'  RADA June 2022
