Following government advice, ESCC have made the decision to postpone or cancel some face to face training. This decision has been made in light of the national concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID - 19). Please see individual courses for more information.
Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (EVENT FULL) (Cancelled)
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) in the Workplace is a two day accredited training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help their ESCC colleagues who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone whilst keeping yourself safe.
What managers are agreeing to when approving their staff member’s attendance on this course:
To releasing your staff member for the two day training course and any post support sessions (approx. 2 sessions lasting a maximum of 3 hours each).
To releasing your staff member for related meetings (approximately 1 or 2 per year).
Allowing time to support colleagues when needed (often at short notice).
What you are committing to:
Undertaking the accredited training and any additional training (where required) to acquire and maintain your MHFA certificate.
Becoming part of the pool of accredited MHFAers and providing mental health first aid within your workplace as needed, at your level of competence and training.
Being able to be called away from your normal duties at short notice if required.
Acting as a Mental Health Champion and partaking in ad-hoc wellbeing events (when required and dependent on needs of the service).
