Why mental health is important in the workplace?

  • Mental Health associated absences cost UK employers an estimated £26 billion per year
  • 1 in 4 people experience mental health issues each year 
  • Men aged 40-49 have the highest suicide rates in Great Britain
  • 70-75% of people with diagnosable mental illness receive no treatment at all
  • Each day, 15 people took their lives in 2017 - from MHFA England Impact Report

Mental health first aid training is designed to support people who experience ill mental health. The person who is trained as a Mental Health First Aider is able to help someone who is experiencing mental health issues, as well as trying to prevent, or help during a mental health crisis.

Mental Health First Aid training gives you structure and strategies to utilise if you encounter someone who experiences depression, distress, psychosis, and other psychological conditions. On completion of the course, a trainee is able to better identify symptoms like depression, anxiety, suicidal behavior, eating disorders, self- harm, psychosis etc.

The training provides with the detailed plan – this is called the ALGEE action plan. The acronym stands for Approach, Listen, Give support, Encourage to seek professional support, Encourage support others.

The maximum number per group is 16 people.  

What will I get from the course?

We provide the learning materials. Each delegate will receive a MHFA manual and workbook. A certificate is also issued, which states that the delegate is now a Mental Health First Aider. 

MHFA training courses at Siren Training are delivered by fully qualified MHFA England certified trainers only. Most of our trainers also have a previous background working in mental health care. So, even though we are generally a minimum of 10% more affordable than any other provider, this does not affect the quality of what we deliver.
