Mental Health First Aider Course Details
Working conditions, environment and workplace culture can have a significant effect on the mental health of your workforce. Empowering your employees to open conversations around mental health can be extremely beneficial to your business, with an estimated 12.7% of all sickness absence days in the UK attributed to mental health conditions. Research has shown that better mental health support in the workplace can save UK businesses up to £8 billion per year.
