About this course

Mental Health is a serious subject. Nearly two-thirds of people say that they have experienced mental ill-health and evidence suggests that poor mental health is responsible for almost 13% of all sickness absence days in the UK. 

One of the biggest challenges with poor mental health is removing the stigma that surrounds it. Many don't hesitate to seek help for physical pain or problem, yet so many of us ignore emotional and mental health issues - or we feel too embarrassed, confused or scared to talk about them. This Mental Health Awareness Training discusses mental health the way you would a headache or the flu, and it encourages you to take care of yourself as you would a loved one.

This course raises awareness, it explains how to approach mental health and remove stigma; and it also provides simple tools, tips and ideas for day-to-day wellbeing-management (for yourself and others).

Happy staff equal healthier, more productive and more successful staff. Put simply, good mental health is a win-win for every employee and their organisation.

BUT the test was rubbish! It felt more like a silly test in a woman's magazine. It was far too easy by making the incorrect answers so obviously wrong. It didn't make me think about what I'd just learnt or test my understanding or retention of the course content.

Very informative.

This is an easy course to follow and is important for us all to take the time to reflect. We are so busy in our own lives that we forget to always look after ourselves. I like the idea for people to find coping mechanisms and for work to provide a wellness awareness plan. I do feel positively that this is the way forward to support people with mental health issues.

Informative and easy to understand

Why is this training important?

Business benefits

Under the HASAWA 1974, employers must “so far as is reasonably practicable” protect the health and safety of employees by removing or reducing workplace risks.

There's more to Mental Health Awareness training than just improving staff wellbeing. Research shows that by investing £1 into staff wellbeing, business owners can expect to see returns of £4.20 on average. Put simply, happier staff equal more productive staff.
