Mental Health First Aider – 2 Day Course

DATE: 29th January 2020 to 30th January 2020

TIME: 09:30

VENUE: ARK Central

LOCATION: Birmingham

INTRODUCTION

The tough economic climate means we are all faced with ever-increasing workloads due to reduced resources, for an organisation this often leads to increased poor mental health amongst employees and an increase in sickness absence due to stress related issues.

Budget cuts have seen the UK public sector workforce drop by over 900,000 since 2010, changes to terms and conditions and pay freezes have led to many people being worse off as the cost of living continues to rise.

The results are rising stress levels, with a knock-on effect on health, wellbeing, performance, confidence and general happiness.

WHY ATTEND?

This two-day course will provide delegates with the ability to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions and provide help on a first aid basis.

All delegates completing the course will receive Mental Health First Aider accreditation.

Training is delivered through a mix of highly interactive group activities, presentations and discussions.
