Training Courses for the workplace
We take great pride to provide a variety of training opportunities suitable for the workplace, to support the mental health and wellbeing of employees and customers. With options on the depth of training and covering specific areas of mental health support, we are able to meet the needs of your organisation. Our mission is to ensure your staff are equipped to manage their own mental wellbeing and recognise when others may require support, as well as how to approach these situations as they arise.
Training options we offer include the MHFA England Adult Two Day MHFAider, One Day Champions and Half Day Mental Health Aware courses. We also deliver training around specific common mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression, Suicide and Self Harm Awareness and developing skills in maintaining your own mental wellbeing.
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; Employee Assistance Programme (Bridging the Gap), our In-House Drop in Clinic Service and our Return to Work Assessment. For a FREE consultation call us on 01803 659 566 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Additional Specialist Services
We have additional services for on-going support and guidance such as;
In-House Drop in Clinic, which is a service where one of our registered mental health professionals attend your organisation for a four hour clinic service where employees, volunteers, and employers can all attend. The time can be broken down to suit your needs, below is an example;
1 hour of guidance and training for the MHFAider(s), 1 hour group activity, 2 hours split into half hour slots for 1:1 booked discussions about their mental health in a confidential manner. Or you can use the full 4 hours with back to back appointments, or a group guidance and training afternoon. (Groups are capped to a maximum of 16 to ensure the full benefit is being received). To qualify for this service there must be at least one Mental Health First Aider within the organisation. If you want to use this service and don't currently have a Mental Health First Aider in your organisation, contact us as we can help you with this too of course.
Our Employee Assistance Programme or 'Bridging the Gap' service, enables an on-going support & consultancy service for employers, employees, or anyone attached to the organisation to make use of. To qualify for this service the organisation must have our Gold Member Package, approach to mental health awareness. This ensures each member of the organisation has received a minimum level of training. This allows each individual to have an understanding, along with a level of self-help options also being explored too. This is paid for by the organisation to enable an individual that requires assistance with their mental health but have found themselves waiting for mainstream services support. We provide fast access to a registered mental health professional to help with begin the recovery process. Keeping them in work ideally, but certainly preventing a longer term absence than is necessary. This service already is proving invaluable to our customers who have opted to use it and feedback shows they truly believe lives have been saved through accessing this service.
Also by adding the EAP programme your organisation will be recognised as a Platinum Member - leading the way for mental health care and wellbeing in the workplace.
