This World Mental Health Day, we’re proud to announce that another 16 members of staff have become qualified as Mental Health First Aiders, giving us a total of 20 across our charity.
Each person has completed a two-day training course and will now be available to offer confidential support to any of our staff who wish to seek advice about their mental wellbeing – from providing a listening ear to signposting staff to external support services if they wish.
“I’m really glad I did the training,” said Dex, our marketing and communications officer. “It has given me the knowledge and the confidence to be able to offer a helping hand when people need someone to talk to. Being aware of our mental health is so important and I’m happy to be able to help in any way I can.”
Our Mental Health First Aiders include men and women of all ages who work in a range of roles across our charity, giving people the opportunity to seek confidential support from a Mental Health First Aider of their choice.
We wish you good mental health.
