Course description

Mental Health First-Aid

This structured training program covers all the key areas regarding First Aid for mental health. Based on a report from Deloitte, one sixth of workers do suffer from mental health issues in the UK. This has become one important factor in regards to work disruptions. Reports suggest that at least half working day is lost due to such situations.

Mental health issues should be handled in the proper way and we want to make sure that organizations are ready to assist and guide their staff towards such kind of serious situations and at the same time reducing organizations costs while handling mental problems by tackling these in the right way.
