Online Mental Health First Aid Courses (20 May & 27 May, 2020)
FM Industry event partner Green Light is offering an online interactive mental health awareness course developed by Mental Health First Aid England for organisations and individuals on two dates in May.
In addition to challenging the stigma that often attaches to discussions about mental health, the course will provide an introduction to common mental health issues and provide participants with the tools they need to determine their own mental health needs and maintain wellbeing.
It is particularly suited to employees who support other people in distress, or who may, themselves, be experiencing a mental health issue and wish to better understand their condition.
On completion, participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance confirming they are ‘Mental Health Aware’, a reference manual, and a workbook and help/self-help toolkit to support better mental health (postal delays as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic means materials will be released on the resumption of airmail services in the UK, although participants can request special delivery by courier – contact Green Light for courier fees).
