How Mental Health Training Can Help

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

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.
