New course and benefits
The workplace has changed for people and organisations. In the last few years we’ve seen a global pandemic economic downturns cost of living pressures adaptation to hybrid working the great resignation and a recruitment crisis. It has taken a toll on employees and now – more than ever – they need mental health support in the workplace.
Mental Health First Aiders (MHFAiders®) are crucial to help boost employee wellbeing as we adjust to a profoundly changed workplace environment. But while MHFAiders® work to support others they need support too.
At MHFA England providing support building confidence and growing a community to drive change is crucial to us. It isn’t a footnote or a half-hearted line in the small print. We’ve spent 15 years generating conversation around workplace mental health and we understand that being an effective MHFAider® requires learning and support beyond training.
Once the Mental Health First Aid Course Online course is over we offer ongoing support to help MHFAiders® feel confident and empowered – long after they’ve completed their training course.
Additionally MHFAiders® receive access to exclusive events to continue developing their support for your workplace beyond the training course.
