Mental Health First Aider

18 Feb 2020 by Pippa Seed

Did you know that over 15 million workdays were lost in 2017/18 due to work related stress, depression and anxiety?

We all have mental health every single day in the same way we all have physical health every single day ..it is a part of our being. There are very few people who have had mental wellness or physical wellness every day of their lives. Life is a journey which can have emotional challenges, distressing events and other elements along the way that effect our mental health. Sometimes we may have the support and resilience to maintain emotional wellness and sometimes we don’t …just like sometimes we have more resilience to maintain our physical health. If, for recovery, we need support, time to rest and restore or professional help then the sooner we receive that, we enable the best and quickest recovery.

Do you know how to support someone experiencing mental ill health?

Can you spot the signs and symptoms?

In 2017/18 15.4 million workdays were lost due to work related stress, depression and anxiety.

Having a MHFA Mental Health First Aider in the workplace, who can spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill-health and who knows how to approach and support someone in a beneficial way can make a really positive difference by preventing escalation of mental illness and even by preventing loss of life.
