In the UK, one out of every six individuals encounters mental health issues in the workplace, while a third of managers admit to feeling ill-equipped to effectively support their team members dealing with mental health concerns.

There is an increasing demand for mental health support in the UK and it is important for colleagues to feel supported and cared for. This is why it is essential to support those in need in the workplace. Most of us would know how to help if we saw someone having a heart attack—we’d start CPR, or at the very least, call 999.. But too few of us would know how to respond if we saw someone having a panic attack or if we were concerned that a friend or co-worker might be showing signs of poor mental health.

So why choose to Become a Mental Health First Aider 

When more people are equipped with the tools they need to start a dialogue, more people can get the help they need. Mental Health First Aiders are a vital link between someone experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge and appropriate supports.

 

The use of the Mental Health First Aid Action Plan ALGEE method, which stands for:
Approach, Assess & Assist with any crisis
Listen and communicate non-judgmentally
Give support and information
Encourage appropriate professional help,
Encourage other supports

 

Become a Mental Health First Aider (MHFAider®)

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe.

What’s more, you’ll gain an understanding of how to support positive wellbeing and tackle stigma in the world around you.

I found Giano extremely professional and approachable; she instantly put me at my ease. Her delivery of the course was excellent; she explained each section in detail and was happy to revisit certain points and answer any questions that we had.I have found the content of the course very useful and informative; it will really help me in future conversations that I have with people, either in the work place or with friends and family, regarding mental health. It has given me the confidence to know how to approach conversations correctly. Giano helped me realise that self-care is equally as important as helping others.
I would happily recommend Giano and the course to anyone who meets with people on a day to day basis. Jayne Franklin

I wasn't aware that this course existed. I am so glad to have completed this course and gained all the knowledge which will help me support more people with confidence and understanding. Giano was a amazing teacher very professional and answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. There was plenty of moments of pausing and taking a break implementing how important self care is and feeling okay with the content and making sure it wasn't upsetting and triggering. I had very informative enjoyable sessions with giano and would recommend this course to everyone in every workplace as its a very important skill to learn to help and support people of all ages and of diverse backgrounds. It's important to learn more about mental health to break barriers and stigma and educate ourselves on what a vital key role we play as a mental health first aider in saving someone's life and improving their health and wellbeing.

My instructor Giano was excellent in her delivery of this course she made me feel comfortable and at ease to ask any question. She explained everything thoroughly and simplified areas and gave support and additional home study references. Her delivery of the course exceeded my expectations. I really enjoyed this course and learnt so much more than I expected about mental health and how to assist people in crisis or before. I would strongly recommend this course and hope we have MHFA in all public sectors especially schools and places of work.
Early intervention is the key to recovery from mental illness, this is why this course is so valuable and so needed.
Giano was a great course leader. She made the live sessions engaging and shared lots of great tips for when supporting individuals with mental health issues. Giano's passion for MHFA is evident through her teaching and I would highly recommend Giano to others who may be interested in completing the MHFAider training. Charlotte AvagnanoThe instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and allowed for topical conversations whilst ensuring the course was delivered. She was very understanding and considerate of the learners feelings throughout ensuring we were alright despite talking about difficult and sometimes upsetting topics. Hallam Devine-Britten

Your ability to create a safe space for discussions about mental health was commendable and your guidance in understanding various mental health conditions, recognising signs and learning appropriate response strategies has been immensely beneficial. The course content was comprehensive, enlightening and incredibly relevant.
I'm walking away from this course equipped with not just knowledge, but also the confidence to offer support and assistance when needed. Emma Nicholson HS1 Ltd
