Mental Health First Aid – Level 1

Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace – Level 1

Mental Health First Aid Level 1 Training – Each year, approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health condition and at least 1 in 6 employees experience common mental health problems in the workplace. Research has shown that work is the biggest cause of stress which can stop people performing at their best.

The stigma and fear of discrimination often lead individuals to conceal their mental health issues. It has been proven through studies that failure to address mental health issues in the workplace can result in significant financial costs for employers. Creating an atmosphere of fear and silence concerning mental health is not only detrimental to employees’ well-being but also affects the bottom line of the company. It is crucial for employers to prioritise the mental health of their workforce to avoid potential financial repercussions.
