Training: Mental Health First Aid

The Centre for Mental Health has found that mental health issues cost UK employers an estimated £34.9 billion each year - the equivalent of £1,300 for every employee in the UK workforce. They found that simple steps to improve the management of mental health in the workplace will allow employers to save 30% or more of these costs – at least £10 billion a year. 

As a result, the demand for mental health first aid courses has grown considerably throughout 2019. What support do you have in place for your staff to assist with your employees' mental health needs? Discover how a Mental Health First Aid course from Accelerator Solutions could be the first step in providing that support, today.
