Mental Health Awareness Training

Every year, British business loses millions of hours to mental health illnesses. From stress to addiction to depression, the impact of poor mental health in the workplace has never been more acute.

Unfortunately, it’s still possible for two people to share a desk every day and for one to be totally unaware the other has a debilitating mental or psychological condition. And, unlike most physical illnesses, the signs of poor mental health aren’t always easy to spot.

Our Mental Health Awareness training is designed to give employees and employers the very best chance of being able to spot a colleague in crisis, to know when and how it’s appropriate to intervene and how organisations can support people on their journey back to wellness.
