• Mental Health

    Mental Health First Aid England approved and certificated courses.

    With growing Mental Health awareness and over 72 million days lost a year due to Mental Health related sickness in the UK alone, there is an estimated cost impact of £45 Billion, which is an average of £1300 per employee a year in absenteeism and presenteeism.


    Presenteeism accounts for twice as much in losses than absences, so how do you spot when someone in the team is struggling, especially when 1 in 6 British adults experience anxiety and depression relating to stress?


    Research shows that 40% of employees have taken time off work due to mental well-being, yet 53% have reported it as physical sickness or holiday due to stigma.


    Now more than ever with the current global situation where people are suddenly expected to work remotely, or they may have been furloughed and are struggling to cope with such a huge change in their daily routines, it is your responsibility to care for the mental health of your teams. As we take the next steps into discovering new blended working, there is huge uncertainty and stress around how this looks.


    Stand apart from others and make a positive shift to reducing stigma in the workplace and supporting positive conversations and attitudes to mental health.




    We work with you on implementing a well-being strategy as well as full spectrum training.


    We offer Mental Health Half Day Awareness courses, which are perfect for all your teams to raise awareness around mental health in the workplace and reduce stigma.


    Line Manager training to support your managers support their teams.


    Mental Health First Aider training, which is the most robust training to have in house first aiders that can listen, support and signpost others to getting the right help in times of crisis or when they need support for their mental health.


    Mental Health First Aid England has approved Yasmin-Kate Pattison as a MHFA England Instructor Member to deliver MHFA Adult courses, the only certified MHFA course recommended by the Department of Health.


    Our clients have reported that H.R caseloads have dropped around performance management issues where the managers have attended this training course as well as a more open and supporting team network within organisations.

  • It's more than just the training...

    As part of our value proposition, we offer ongoing support whilst you fully embed your programs, as we know that training is only one part of the journey. Let's talk about how we can collaborate!

  • What will you learn?


    Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches you how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue. MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.


    You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe. You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms.


    This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP, their school or place of work, online self-referral, support groups, and more. What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.
