There is no health without mental health

Mental Health First Aid Training

The Mind Hub - dots copy 2.png

Thankfully over recent years, we have seen an increase in awareness of the importance of mental wellbeing in the workplace.  With mental health problems costing the UK economy at least £117.9 billion annually according to a new report published in March 2022 by the Mental Health Foundation and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) it is no wonder that organisations are starting to listen.  

It is important for any organisation to cultivate psychologically safe environments in which people can thrive and feel supported in seeking help for their mental health. In the same way we would train our teams to be able to respond to those who need physical first aid, we can also train them to provide frontline support to those who need mental health first aid (MHFA) too.  By bringing mental health first aid in line with physical first aid, organisations are better prepared to support wellbeing as a whole.  At the Mind Hub we are trained and continue to work with Mental Health First Aid England (MHFAE) to provide this training.

Half Day Mental Health Awareness for Line Managers

This is not a MHFA England product but our own that we built to support Line Managers.  As this is our own course, it can be tweaked to suit the needs of your teams.

Mental health impacts how we think, feel and behave.  It affects our resilience to the daily challenges of life and how we perform whether that be in or out of the workplace.  At any given time, 1 in 6 working-age adults have symptoms associated with mental ill health and workplaces provide great opportunities in which to spot the warning signs, have open wellbeing conversations and signpost people towards further support.  Line managers are well placed to spot the warning signs in their team members but perhaps do not have the time to commit to a full MHFAider® role or have the confidence to hold these types of conversations.  Our bespoke course specifically designed for line managers supports them to feel more confident in having conversations about mental health and wellbeing.

Course outcomes:  By the end of the course, line managers will be able to:
  • Recognise the signs and symptoms of mental ill health.

  • Have a supportive conversation in a constructive way.

  • Signpost someone towards further help, either internally or professional help.

  • Be more aware of their own mental health and how to care for it.

1hr -  What is Mental Health? 

Support Group Meeting

This popular workshop is suitable for all levels of an organisation.  It is often used to either raise awareness, be a springboard for promoting further mental health initiatives or as a gauge to test the appetite for further training in mental health such as Line Manager, MHFA Champion or MHFAider®.


Mental health is integral to our overall wellbeing, there is no health without mental health. We are all
on a mental health continuum and our mental wellbeing will naturally fluctuate as does our physical
health. However, we often do not apply the same level of care to our mental health as our physical
health. Better awareness of mental health, early intervention and confidence around having those
important conversations is key for promoting a good recovery and positive wellbeing.

During this interactive workshop, we will explore:
  • What the term 'mental health' really means.

  • Spotting the signs of poor mental health and mental illness.

  • Tips for getting a mental health conversation started.

  • In-house and external mental health support.

Get in touch today to arrange your free no obligation discovery call to see how we can help you bring a greater focus of mental health into your workplace.

Video Case Study

Sarah Mason talk s about Mental Health First Aid at Work - Wellcome Trust 

We were delighted to have Tricia as our MHFA Instructor, she's a skilled facilitator and helped us grow and learn so much in a short space of time.

Tricia managed to create such a great environment for reflection and sharing, despite the training being entirely on-line. I would highly recommend Tricia to any employer considering doing more to support mental well-being in the workplace.
