Mental Health First Aid Awareness Training

Mental Health First Aid Awareness Training

As part of our commitment to the Building Mental Health Charter, we have recently trained 28 members of the Maylim team in Mental Health First Aid Awareness. All directors, managers, supervisors and support staff were included in the training.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Awareness provides a professional introduction to mental health as part of an overall business drive to improve wellbeing. The half day training session enables delegates to gain knowledge in the following areas;

+ Understanding factors that affect mental health

+ Identifying the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health issues

+ Gain confidence in starting mental health conversations

+ Understand how to better look after their own mental health

These members of staff are now mental health champions, and will be able to support our 9 fully trained Mental Health First Aiders who took the 2 day course last year.
