Mental Health First Aid

We all experience life’s ups and downs yet how each of us copes with the downs differs. Mental Health First Aid is a programme that helps you understand how to deal with challenging life situations. It also teaches you how to support others within your organisation who are going through a difficult time. Using real life situations, trained instructors show you and/or members of your team, how to listen without judgement, enabling you to actively support and encourage team members to seek professional help if needed.

To support the work we do across workplace wellbeing, we offer Mental Health First Aid training at your place of work or in larger groups of individuals.

“Safe365 has helped raise awareness for the health and safety committee. Knowledge can then be filtered down to employees on best practice. Safe365 has shown us we’re in quite a good place to start from and we’re more confident now that our efforts are getting off on the right foot and the app will help make it much easier to keep tabs.”
