About this course

Mental Health is a serious subject. Nearly two-thirds of people say that they have experienced mental ill-health. In fact, the HSE report that mental ill-health (specifically stress, depression or anxiety) is now accountable for over 50% of all working days lost and 51% of work-related ill health in 2019/20. 

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 also provides simple tools, tips, and ideas for day-to-day wellbeing management (for yourself and others). It's also a fantastic supporting tool for organisations looking to achieve compliance with the new ISO 45003 standard

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.

Very interesting course, we all know someone with mental health problems, this helps us to recognise what help is on offer.

The mental course is great

Mental health course has given me a greater understanding of myself and other peoples needs.

Slow course because of using a mobile ph
RatingRatingRatingRatingRating

To carry out a course on a mobile phone ,is just ridiculous, the phone keeps stopping ,the internet is absolutely terrible, very slow and lagging, this needs to be either done on a computer, or a proper tablet, I have noted this a number of times before but we keep getting courses on phones which are not suitable to take a course on. I suggest we have three or four people up at the office at one time and carry out a course on the big screen so everyone can learn correctly and not miss anything out ,and then answer the questions correctly without having to keep tapping the phone as it's gone black and you end up pressing the wrong answer, again this has been noted a number times before, on each course we have done but seems to fall on deaf ears

A great refresher on an important topic
RatingRatingRatingRatingRating

A great refresher on an important topic that many people choose to ignore or overlook.This has made me think again about my own mental health and that of my friends/colleagues.

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 £5 on average. Put simply, happier staff equal more productive staff.

Working towards ISO 45003 compliance? 

Section 6 of the ISO 45003 guidance document is all about planning actions to address risks and opportunities. The guidance suggests that one of the key ways to address psychological risks in the workplace is by “increasing resources that assist workers to deal with psychosocial risks by raising awareness and understanding through effective training”.
