 Mental Health Awareness and Mental Health First Aider (for adults)

Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental illness each year. In 2016, 15.8 million UK work days were lost due to mental illness. Mental health related conditions such as stress, anxiety and depression cost the UK economy over £32 billion in 2017, indicating that overhauls to how we treat mental health in the workplace needs to be changed.

The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training programme was first developed to train the public in providing help to adults with mental ill-health problems by the regulatator the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).  A recent update to guidelines highlights to employers the importance of providing mental health as well as physical health risk assessment for staff. The First Aid guidance located on the HSE website now provides employers with advice on how to support employees experiencing a mental health issue, including training staff as mental health trained first aiders.

Surrey First Aid Training is delighted to deliver Mental Health First Aider and Awareness Training which meets the guidelines of the HSE.  This course runs in conjunction with Mind Woking, the Mental Health Charity and covers all apsects of mental health conditions recognition, first aid and where and how to get support. This course can be delivered by our Mental Health First Aid England (MHFA England) registered trainer and training programme, or we also offer a Surrey First Aid Training option which reduces the cost of delivering the training.
