MHFA England. Mental Health First Aid Champions Course - 18th November


CPD
International SOS Office, Building 4, Chiswick Park, 566 Chiswick High Road, London, W4 5YE
Mental Health First Aid starts with you! If you are reading this you are already thinking about how to improve the mental health of your organisation. Work is good for health and health is good for business. Healthy people are happier, more engaged and more productive. We spend over half of our lives at work and it makes sense that the places we work in and the people who work in them are as healthy as they can be. We all have mental health in the same way that we all have physical health. Mental health issues are common: 60% of UK employees have experienced a mental health issue due to work, or where work was a contributing factor 31% of UK employees have been ‘formally diagnosed’ with a mental health condition But many of us know little about mental health compared to our physical health. Stigma and lack of awareness can stop people from talking about their mental health, delaying them from getting the support needed for recovery. This silence extends to the workplace. People often avoid disclosing a mental health issue to their employer for fear of being demoted, losing their job, or judged as less capable and missing out on opportunities. These concerns are justified if a Bupa poll is reflective of organisational attitudes to mental ill health: 94% of business leaders admitted to prejudice against people with mental health issues in their organisation. The costs of ignoring mental health? Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society, causing 15.8 million days of absence in the UK in 2016 (Office for National Statistics, 2017: Sickness absence in the labour market: 2016).  Mental ill health costs UK employers an estimated £35 billion each year - broken down, that’s £10.6 billion in sickness absence, £21.2 billion in reduced productivity, and £3.1 billion in replacing staff who leave their jobs for mental health-related reasons. What can you do? This one day mental health awareness and skills course qualifies your employees as MHFA Champions, giving them:
  • Knowledge and confidence to provide Mental Health First Aid for the most common mental health issues
  • An understanding of how to help build a mentally healthy workplace, challenge stigma and support positive wellbeing
Format
  • One day face to face course
  • Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities
  • We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn
Takeaways Everyone who completes the course gets:
  • A certificate of attendance to say they are an MHFA Champion
  • A manual to refer to whenever they need it
  • A quick reference card for the Mental Health First Aid action plan
  • A workbook including a helpful toolkit to support their own mental health
  • A copy of the Line Managers' Resource, an invaluable source of advice on how to support an employee experiencing mental ill health

Charity


Every year the Security Institute Chairman chooses a charity partner that the Institute supports. This year we are proud to support Send a Cow.

Send a Cow was set up by a group of Christian dairy farmers from the UK in 1988. Outraged at EU milk quotas, which were forcing them to slaughter healthy dairy cows, and in response to an appeal from Uganda for milk, they embarked on a project, which was set to become an innovative and practical charity. Uganda was just emerging from a long civil war, communities and their farmland had been destroyed and much of the country’s livestock wiped out. Several of the UK farmers flew to Africa to investigate how they could help.

In 2017 the charity Emerge Poverty Free merged with Send a Cow. Together they support even more families in Africa, empowering them to secure their own futures and helping them to lift themselves from poverty.

Read more about Send a Cow and how you can support the charity through fundraising and donations HERE.
