Course Overview

Mental Health is a serious subject. Nearly two-thirds of people say that they have experienced issues with mental health. Evidence suggests that poor mental health is responsible for almost 13% of all sick days in the UK.

One of the biggest challenges with poor mental health is removing the stigma that surrounds it. Many people wouldn’t hesitate to seek help for physical problems, yet so many of us ignore emotional and mental health issues. We often feel too embarrassed, confused, or scared to talk about them. This Mental Health Awareness Training discusses mental health the same way you would a headache or the flu, and it encourages you to take care of yourself as you would a loved one.

The course raises awareness by explaining how to approach the subject of mental health. It also provides simple tools, tips and ideas for day-to-day wellbeing-management (for yourself and others).

When your employees are happy, they are by default, healthier, more productive, and more successful. Ultimately, strong mental health is a win-win for every employee and the organisation.

Why is Mental Health Awareness Important?

Under the HASAWA 1974, employers must “so far as is reasonably practicable” protect the health and safety of employees by removing or reducing workplace risks.

There's a lot more to Mental Health Awareness training than simply improving the wellbeing of your staff. Research shows that by investing £1 into staff wellbeing, business owners can expect to see returns of £4.20 on average.
