What is Mental Health First Aid? 

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. Adult MHFA courses are for everyone aged 16 upwards. 
 
What makes us different? every MHFA course is delivered by a highly experienced mental health professional who has attended the MHFA England Instructor Training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, and is a NMC Registered Mental Health Nurse and experienced healthcare educator. This ensures that every course we offer is delivered by an expert in mental health with a wealth of knowledge to compliment and support your learning and development. We also offer great on-going support services such as our; Drop-In Clinic and Bridging the Gap. See our Guidance and Support page for more information.

Who are we for? 

All employers should take the mental wellbeing of their staff and customers seriously. To ensure this, it is important that employers and employees are aware of mental health matters and the impact this can have in the workplace. We feel that to encourage employees to be open about their mental health needs, makes for a healthier, happier and more productive workforce.  
 
A culture within organizations which adopts this approach to mental health awareness enables employers to support their staff effectively, reducing absences, presenteeism and recruitment costs. 

Whole organisation approach 

Mindmaps Wellbeing training is a key component for creating a safe, 
healthy workplace where the mental health and physical health 
of employees are valued equally. It gives people the tools to 
support their own mental health and that of their colleagues and 
encourages them to access timely support when needed. 
But to be effective and have a sustainable impact, the training 
needs to be implemented as part of a strategic, whole organisation 
approach to wellbeing. This guide will take you through the key 
considerations to help you embed positive, long-term cultural and 
behavioural change. Every workplace is unique so we encourage 
you to identify the best ways to apply these in your organisation. 
Business in the Community’s 2018 Mental Health at Work report 
found that workplace approaches to mental health are moving in 
the right direction but there is still work to be done. As employers 
we are on this journey together, and Mindmaps Wellbeing is here to 
support you. 
 

Why Mental Health Training? 

The cost to UK employers is estimated at £45 Billion in the UK, this figure is taken from the Deloitte report 2020. The biggest cost isn't absence but in fact through presenteeism. 
For every £1 invested in employee assistance programmes, the business return ranges from £3to £8. Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of mental health charity, Mind, says “the cost of failing to address mental health in the workplace is clear. Workplace mental health should be a priority for organisations across the UK.” 
Promoting positive mental health is in the best interests of all business leaders. Happy and supported employees are able to perform far better, not only providing savings in terms of sick leave, but also maximising productivity. To reduce the cost of mental health in your organisation the evidence suggests that investing in training and support programmes is the easiest way to achieve this. To ensure your business doesn’t miss opportunities to prevent and support poor mental health invest in our comprehensive workplace training and support programmes to give your staff access to specialist guidance, information and support for positive mental health and wellbeing by registered mental health nurses.
