Training NHS staff in Mental Health First Aid

“The course taught me a lot. I didn’t realise there were so many issues and stigma’s around mental health. I learned to signpost and support family and colleagues.” Lisa Brooks, Data Maintenance Administrator

I found out about NHS Mood Zone and Battle Scars, that I didn’t know existed. These are places that help a lot of people with issues.

The challenge

We were commissioned by David, Head of Learning & Development at NHS Supply Chain to train his staff in Mental Health First Aid.

What We Did

Through our online, Mental Health First Aid England accredited half day course, we trained staff to be able to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health, listen non-judgementally and signpost effectively.

The outcome

“The course taught me a lot. I didn’t realise there were so many issues and sigma’s around mental health. I learned to signpost and support family and colleagues.” Lisa Brooks, Data Maintenance Administrator, NHS.
