Awareness of Mental Health First Aid – Level 1 (RQF)

Monday 7th September 10am

The Benefits of Corporate Wellbeing
Wellbeing at work enables everyone to be at their best. In 2018 in Great Britain, there were 595,000 cases of work-related stress, depression or anxiety leading to 15.4 million working days lost. Good employers are also caring employers. They understand that not only are people the most valuable asset in any organization, performance also increases when they feel valued. Our course teaches employees and managers how they can create an open culture and how to set realistic, achievable and measurable goals.
Our location is 5 minutes walk from Caerphilly train station and our smart modern training facilities include an on-site cafe for breaks and lunch. Cost £65 + VAT per person.

Why everyone should have this training?
Anyone can be affected by a mental health condition either themselves or a family member, friend or colleague.
This awareness course is suitable for everyone as it provides learners with the knowledge to recognise a suspected mental health condition and the skills to start a conversation and be able to signpost a person towards professional help.
