What is Mental Health First Aid Training

Mental health is a growing concern across the UK and is a leading cause of referrals to occupational health. One in four of us are likely to experience a mental health problem each year which is likely to impact on our ability to work. Mental ill health is the single largest cause of disability in the UK, with the cost of mental illness to the economy estimated at around £105 billion annually (Department of Health). This includes direct costs of services, lost productivity at work and reduced quality of life.

Collingwood Health’s Mental Health First Aid training will:

  • Give your people the practical tools to recognise symptoms of mental health
  • Support those experiencing mental distress and guide them to seek appropriate professional help
  • Empower people with a long-term mental health issue or disability to thrive in work
  • Stop preventable health issues arising by building a supportive culture around mental health
  • Help to embed positive, long term cultural change across your organisation

For information about our courses, please see below under First Aid at Work and Mental Health First Aid Courses



What is Stress & Resilience Training

Some stress can be good for you. Pressure helps you focus and gives direction. However, too much stress can lead to ill mental health causing people to miss work, resulting in a referral to occupational health.

Collingwood Health’s Stress & Resilience training enables delegates to detect, prevent and manage stress. They will build resilience, cope better with pressure and adversity, and keep performing at their best.

Training is available for employees or managers. Managers will gain an understanding of their responsibilities as a manager regarding work-related stress and the types of interventions available to deal with stress at work. Participants will have the chance to explore resilience from a range of perspectives and in a range of contexts in order to increase understanding of resilience and why it is important.

Level 2 CPR & AED 4HR


Course Overview

The presence of an AED alongside the right training can improve the chance of survival in the event of cardiac arrest by as much as 75%. The CPR & AED course provides training on how to perform good CPR and to manage an incident in the event of cardiac arrest. The CPR & AED course also covers the use of AEDs and the differences between some of the AEDs available. If you have an AED on your premises, or if there is a public access AED nearby then our trainer can provide specific training on this device. It should be noted that even if a preference device has been indicated our trainers will still provide information on other devices that the student may encounter outside of your premises. An AED device is designed to be used by any bystander even if they have not had previous training. This training is however proven to increase confidence in using the device and ensure that in the event of an emergency someone is present with the training and confidence to use the device correctly. The 4-hour course is a Level 2/5 award and you will receive a TQUK Level 2/5 RQF Certificate.

Evacuation Chair Training

Conformance

Under the Equality Act 2010 it is unlawful to discriminate against any person with regard to any disability they may have. This includes the evacuation of your premises in the event of a fire. Being left behind in a building whilst other colleagues are leaving is not only unsafe, but is a clear breach of legislation which could result in legal action being taken against you. Correct procedures must be in place in the event of an incident and these procedures need to be learnt and practiced by anybody responsible for evacuating a building using evacuation equipment.

This is a certified course enabling conformation with the Equality Act 2010.
