Seminar overview

Mental health issues are common. Nearly 1 in 5 adults in England reported experiencing symptoms of common mental health issues (such as anxiety, depression and panic) in the previous week. Supporting mental health in the workplace is not just a corporate responsibility; staff who have positive mental health are more productive and businesses who promote a progressive approach to mental health can see a significant impact on business performance, so it’s about good business too.

To improve awareness of mental health issues in the workplace and provide your employees with practical knowledge and tools to support good mental health in their colleagues and themselves, Fitways have teamed up with Mental Health Now to provide Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England courses for our clients on their premises. MHFA is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis.

  • An understanding of what mental health is and how to challenge stigma
  • A basic knowledge of some common mental health issues
  • An introduction to looking after your own mental health and maintaining wellbeing
  • Confidence to support someone in distress or who may be experiencing a mental health issue

Takeaways:

  • A course manual (detailed information on course syllabus, helpful summaries of skills learnt, useful statistics and further resources)
  • A workbook including a helpful toolkit to support their own mental health
  • A certificate of completion issued by MHFA England
