Mental Health
First Aid Training

Know how to help

We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Mental ill health can strike at any time and can affect people from all walks of life.

Although things are improving, stigma still exists around mental ill health. As a society, we don't tend to know how to take care of our mental health like we do our physical health. This means that people may not know how to support a friend, family member or colleague experiencing a mental health issue, or where to go for support with their own mental health.

One in four of us will experience a mental health issue each year.

Mental health is about how we think, feel and behave. Anxiety and depression are the most common mental health problems. They are often a reaction to a difficult life event, such as bereavement, but can also be caused by work-related issues.

"An integrated approach to health and well-being can nurture heightened levels of employee engagement while fostering a workforce where people are committed to achieving organisational success." (CIPD, 2021)

Below you will find information on some of the training solutions Blooming Mind can provide to support you in making your organisation a thriving and supportive place to work.
