What are the benefits?
Mental Health 1st aid training can be beneficial for both individuals and organisations. Here are a few reasons why you should consider doing mental health training:
1. Improve your understanding of mental health: Mental health training can help you better understand the various mental health conditions that exist, as well as the symptoms and warning signs associated with these conditions.
2. Learn how to support others: Through mental health training, you can learn how to provide support and assistance to someone in need, whether it be a colleague, friend, or family member.
3. Reduce stigma: Many people still experience shame and embarrassment when it comes to discussing mental health issues. Mental health training can help reduce stigma and encourage more open and honest conversations about mental health.
4. Improve workplace culture: By providing mental health training to employees, organizations can promote a culture of compassion, empathy, and understanding. This can lead to a more supportive and inclusive workplace environment.
5. Take care of your own mental health: Mental health training can also help you take better care of your own mental health by teaching you coping strategies, self-care techniques, and stress management skills.
Mental health problems can impact an individual’s performance at work, increase absenteeism, and lead to turnover. By having mental health first aiders in the workplace, employees can receive support and assistance when they need it, which can help them stay healthy and productive.
Mental health first aiders can also help reduce the stigma around mental health in the workplace by promoting a culture of openness and understanding. They can provide training to other employees on how to recognise signs and symptoms of mental health problems and offer advice on how to provide initial support and guidance.
It’s important for businesses to prioritise the mental health of their employees, and having mental health first aiders is one way to do so. However, it’s important to note that mental health first aiders are not a substitute for professional mental health care, and businesses should also provide resources and support for employees to access professional services if needed.
Improved mental health: Mental health training can teach employees how to recognise and manage their own mental health needs, leading to enhanced resilience and decreased stress levels.
Increased productivity: When employees feel supported and heard, they are more engaged and motivated to work. Mental health training can provide tools and resources that help employees reduce distractions and improve their focus on tasks.
Reduced absenteeism: Employees who struggle with mental health issues may miss work more often. Mental health training can decrease absenteeism rates by helping employees manage their mental health needs effectively.
Improved workplace culture: By providing mental health training, employers can create a culture of empathy and understanding. This can help reduce the stigma around mental health and foster a positive work environment where people feel free to share their concerns.
Better customer service: Employees who have received mental health training can better understand the needs of customers who may be struggling with their own mental health challenges.
