Mental Health First Aiders

We all have mental health in the same way as physical health, but the organisation Mental Health First Aid England suggest that many of us know little about mental health and the stigma attached.

The resistance to talk about mental health extends to the workplace, with individuals avoiding discussing mental health issues at work, for fear of being viewed as less capable.

We firmly believe that speaking about emotional wellbeing and mental health is not a sign of weakness, which is why we introduced training for a number of staff members to be Mental Health First Aiders.

Mental Health First Aid is internationally recognised, and gives individuals the skills to spot the signs that someone is suffering with their mental health and provide help on a first aid basis.

Our trained Mental Health First Aiders are staff, who have volunteered to undergo the Mental Health First Aid training.

They are the first point of contact and reassurance if staff members are experiencing any kind of mental health related issue.

They are here to listen, give staff comfort and guide towards the right support.

If you are struggling right now, please consider making contact with one of those listed on the poster below via email, although they may not be able to respond immediately, they will arrange a time to call or meet up at a time a place that feels safe for you.
