Can You Ignore Workplace Mental Health?
Accelerator Solutions have introduced an accredited Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course following a research finding that mental health issues affect one-in-six workers and account for 91 million lost workdays in the UK.
Offered under license from Mental Health for England (MHFA), the new course will combine presentations and activities with work based around the MHFA action plan.
The course will be delivered by multi-award winning trainer and licensed Mental Health Instructor, Nina Maan.
Announcing the course’s launch, Henry Hopkins, Accelerator Solutions managing director, said:
“UK employers are gradually waking up to the fact that mental health problems in the workplace are a significant issue. They are now realising that they have an important role to play in supporting employees to make mental health first aid as equally important as physical first aid in the workplace.
“Our aim is to make Mental Health First Aid training accessible to companies of all sizes. By investing in these courses, employers will assist their staff with being able to identify, understand and help a colleague who may be experiencing a mental health crisis – this empathic action may even be able to help to prevent the crisis altogether. And of course, providing MHFA training will also have significant business benefits in terms of decreasing the impact of mental health issues on factors such as productivity and profitability.”.
The company’s next MHFA open course will take place in London on 25th and 26th June. Visit https://www.acceleratorsolutions.com/mental-health-first-aid.php for more information.
