Mental Health First Aid, Wellbeing & Resilience
"Mental Health is defined as a state of wellbeing in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community." - World Health Organisation - 2014
Mental Health is about how we think, feel and behave. First Aid for Mental Health is the initial support provided to a person experiencing a mental health problem until professional help is received or until the crisis is resolved.
Following an employers' First Aid Needs Assessment they may decide that it will be beneficial to have personnel trained to identify and understand symptoms and be able to support someone who might be experiencing a mental health issue. Employers should consider ways to manage mental ill health in their workplace, which are appropriate for their business, such as providing information or training for managers and employees, employing occupational health professionals, appointing mental health trained First Aiders and implementing employee support programmes. First aid training courses covering mental health, teach delegates how to recognise warning signs of mental ill health and help them to develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone, while keeping themselves safe.
