FMC Training Services will be offering the following accredited and in-house training courses at some point in 2019.
Mental Health First Aid teaches managers and staff how to spot signs and symptoms of common mental health issues, provide non-judgemental support and reassurance, and guide a person to seek professional support they may need to recover.
Workplace mental health training has been proven to make a lasting difference in people’s knowledge and confidence around mental health. Thanks to the development of mental health first aid training courses, responsible employers now have an opportunity to address the key issue of ignorance about mental health in the workplace. Those that choose to do so are likely to improve the workplace for staff and have a positive impact on business profitability.
Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society. Work related stress accounted for 45% of all working days lost to ill health in the UK in 2015/16.
Mental health related absences cost UK employers an estimated £26 billion per year – over £1,000 per employee – on top of the value of lost productivity. By taking a few simple steps to improve the management of mental health in the workplace, UK employers could save 30% or more of these losses – at least £8 billion a year
