Mental Health Awareness

In the UK, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem at any one time, including in the workplace. What’s worse is that many employers and managers simply don’t understand enough about the topic and so can do little to help, which often results in a person’s mental health worsening.

This training course has been designed as an introduction to mental health to raise an awareness of how important it is to the workplace. The course provides an overview of mental health problems, outlining some of the symptoms and effects, and explains what you can do to help colleagues feel supported and encouraged. The course aims to promote positive mental health and demonstrate how easy it can be for employers to make adjustments in order to encourage tolerance and understanding in the workplace.

Who Should Take This Course?

This Mental Health Awareness course is suitable for all HR workers, managers, supervisors and employers who wish to understand more about mental health conditions so that employees can be better supported and positive mental health can be encouraged in the workplace. The course is designed as an introduction to mental health and so no pre-requisite knowledge or training is needed.

Certification

On successful completion of the course you will be sent a quality assured certificate through the post the next working day. This can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit.

All of our courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.

St John Ambulance | Mental Health First Aider 

Mental Health First Aid Training Courses

St John Ambulance is working with Mental Health First Aid England to provide mental health courses which will help raise awareness of mental illness, enabling people to support themselves and others to aid recovery. Our courses are designed to reduce stigma through education and increase the provision of care for those who have a mental illness.

What courses do we have available?

  • Adult Mental Health First Aid One Day Course (for those wanting to gain a greater awareness of mental health)
  • Adult Mental Health First Aid Two Day Course (for those wanting to recognise the signs and symptoms of common mental health illnesses and effectively guide a person towards the right support)

What is the impact of mental illness in the workplace?

Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental illness each year. In 2016, 15.8 million UK work days were lost due to mental illness.*

The largest causes of sickness absence for our county’s workforce is depression, stress, and anxiety. Mental illness costs UK businesses around £35 billion every year, this equates to £10.6 billion lost to sickness absence, £21.2 billion in reduced productivity, and £3.1 billion in substituting staff members who vacate their roles due to mental illness.**

What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid teaches managers and staff how to spot signs and symptoms of common mental health issues, provide non-judgemental support and reassurance, and guide a person to seek professional support they may need to recover.

Workplace mental health training has been proven to make a lasting difference in people’s knowledge and confidence around mental health. Thanks to the development of mental health first aid training courses, responsible employers now have an opportunity to address the key issue of ignorance about mental health in the workplace. Those that choose to do so are likely to improve the workplace for staff and have a positive impact on business profitability.

How effective are the Mental Health First Aid courses?

Independent research and evaluation shows that taking part in a Mental Health First Aid course raises awareness of mental illnesses, encourages early intervention to aid recovery, increases confidence in dealing with mental illnesses and reduces stigma.

Research suggests that improving UK workplace mental health management could reduce employers’ losses attributed to mental illness by 30%, collectively saving £8 billion a year.

Why does an employer’s duty of care include staff mental health?

Employers have a legal duty of care to ensure that employees are provided with a safe working environment and must take reasonable care to prevent personal injury (including mental or physical harm) that may arise in the workplace.

What are the business consequences of ignoring mental health in the workplace?

Someone with poor mental health may not realise it and even if they do, they may be reluctant to seek help, or might not know where to turn for care. In the workplace, there is still a great deal of ignorance around mental health issues, including uncertainty about how to recognise mental illness, and uncertainty about how to react when faced with it. This means that those in need of mental health help and support do not receive it.

When left uninformed, managers and co-workers may unwittingly exhibit stigmatising behaviours, which can be detrimental to a person experiencing a mental health issue. Furthermore, by failing to respond appropriately to an employee with a mental health issue, an organisation may open itself to a claim for compensation. This could be lengthy, expensive, and take precious time away from managers and staff.

Best for Emergency Services

Managing mental health in the emergency services training course

Our independent research shows that 9 out of 10 members of the emergency services have experienced stress, low mood or poor mental health at some point whilst at work. Give your line managers and team leaders the skills that they need to manage mental health in your organisation with our half-day course.

  • Emotional intelligence and resilience

Why sign up?

71% of emergency services staff and volunteers we surveyed feel that their organisation does not encourage them to talk about mental health. Line managers and team-leaders can play a vital role in reducing stigma and encouraging staff to talk about their mental health problems.

We’ve also learnt that there is a need to actively build trust between staff and senior managers in the emergency services when it comes to talking about mental health. One way that you could build that trust is by giving managers and team-leaders the tools that they need through this course, so they can actively support their staff to stay well and prevent any problems from getting worse.

It’s important to take care of the mental health of your staff. Our research shows that emergency services staff and volunteers are even more likely to be affected but less likely to seek support.

About the course

Our course is for anyone in the emergency services who has a line manager, team leader or pastoral role. It’s tailored to the unique environments that the emergency services operate in and we can provide a version for ambulance, fire, police or search and rescue services.

The half day course is designed to be delivered face-to-face to a group of 8 to 16 participants. It features a balance of trainer-led presentation with opportunities for participant discussion and interaction so everyone can get the most out of the session.

We suggest that the course is mandatory for all line managers or team leaders to enable the benefits to be felt throughout your organisation. This would also ensure that learning was undertaken by those that needed it most.

"We have just finished the first training course. I just wanted to say how well it went down with our staff. We consider it to be a huge success and there is considerable appetite to run another session"

What you'll learn

Participants will gain the following:

  • Improved awareness and understanding of mental health at work and how work can affect emergency services staff and volunteers. 
  • Awareness of the signs of mental ill health, how to broach the issue and explore support measures.
  • Understanding of Mind’s framework for creating mentally healthy workplaces and how to create a mentally healthy workplace using Mind’s three-pronged approach.
  • Understanding of how to proactively manage employees’ mental wellbeing so as to reduce mental ill health and its associated risks for absence.

Mental Health Awareness Training | Approved Online Course | iHasco

Mental Health Awareness Training

This Mental Health Awareness Training raises awareness of ill-mental health (particularly stress, depression and anxiety), provides tools and guidance for daily wellbeing-management, and aims to remove the stigma surrounding mental health.

Mental Health is a serious subject. Nearly two-thirds of people say that they have experienced a mental health problem and evidence suggests that poor mental health is responsible for almost 13% of all sickness absence days in the UK. 

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

This course raises awareness, it explains how to approach mental health and remove stigma; and it also provides simple tools, tips and ideas for day-to-day wellbeing-management (for yourself and others).

Happy staff equal healthier, more productive and more successful staff. Put simply, good mental health is a win-win for every employee and their organisation.

Key Features & Benefits of this Course

  • CPD accredited
  • Take positive steps to remove stigma surrounding mental health
  • Receive certificates upon course completion
  • Helps you comply with current legislation
