Code: ESC/20/199 Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (EVENT FULL)

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) in the workplace is a two day 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.

The course covers how to support someone to access the resources they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms. This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more.

It is essential that your line manager is made aware of the following at the time of, and before approving, your application

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).
