Why is mental health training important in your workplace?

Poor mental health among staff costs UK employers between £42bn and £45bn each year₁ – with the cost felt in both productivity and process management.

Businesses and organisations which promote workplace mental health solutions can benefit their bottom line through:

  • Increased commitment and job satisfaction

  • Increased staff retention

  • Improved productivity and performance

  • Reduced staff absenteeism

  • Reduced staff turnover

Building capacity in your organisation with Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training can help to minimise the impact of poor mental health on your business and maintain healthy workplaces.

Choosing the right course for your workforce:

Everyone starts with the base Mental Health First Aid course. This will give your employees an understanding of mental health and the factors which can affect wellbeing.

  • They will learn how to listen effectively and how to signpost colleagues to self-help resources. The course also helps people to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues and to support people in distress.

For employees who would like to develop the role Mental Health First Aiders play in the workplace, we’ve created Mental Health First Aid in practice.

  • Your Mental Health First Aiders’ will consider the implications of their role in more detail, looking at safeguarding, self-care, support and signposting. They’ll also explore how to raise awareness about mental health - ending with a team action plan to put into place the strategies and activities suggested throughout the course.

MHFA England recommends a refresher for Mental Health First Aiders who received training three or more years ago, so we also offer Mental Health First Aid refresher course.

  • Following a similar approach to the physical first aid model, this maintains CPD levels with new actions, responses, and terminology which have emerged in the field of workplace mental health and wellbeing.
