Mental health first aid for the workplace

  • Understand what psychological first aid is and why it's needed
  • Discover the power in your words and how they can make a huge difference
  • Learn simple but powerful techniques to make a positive difference straightaway

The last year has taken a toll on everyone’s mental health. Uncertainty and stress can have a profound impact on our wellbeing. Knowledge of mental health first aid can allow you to help yourself and your colleagues overcome the challenges we can’t see.

Many of us know what to do if someone has a physical injury but what should we say or do when it comes to problems with psychological health? We might not even recognise that there is a problem at all. Yet, 1 in 4 of us experience a mental health problem in any given year.

Honey Langcaster-James will explore why it is vital we are able to spot when someone is suffering and respond to them in a psychologically safe and helpful way. In the modern workplace, more is needed than to #BeKind; we all need far greater knowledge and awareness, and crucially, simple yet powerful tools to help one another during the hardest of times.
