As a business we are acutely aware that it is not just physical illness that contributes to workplace absence. In fact, mental ill health is now the biggest cause of employee sickness absence.
We welcomed our local Mental Health Trainer, Kate to our Portsmouth HQ to deliver the Mental Health First Aid course. This course enables us to develop our awareness of various mental health conditions and gives our employees the confidence to talk openly about mental health in the workplace. It also teaches practical skills to identify symptoms of a wide range of mental health conditions and understanding the things that can affect mental well being. By the end of the course, our group of First Aiders felt confident that they could identify and offer support to an employee in mental distress.
