Adult Mental Health First Aid

Did you know that:

  • 1 in 4 adults will experience a mental health difficulty at some point in their life. It can affect anyone and has a major impact on every area of life including work.

  • 91% of managers agree that what they do as a manager affects the well-being of their staff. However, only 58% of employees believe that their manager is genuinely equipped to cope with their well-being.

  • In a recent article, published by the Institute of Leadership and Management, it was noted that mental health was the area where managers were most likely to fall down.

Would you know how to support staff or colleagues facing mental health difficulties?

We believe that every ‘people’ manager should receive expert training on mental health and this should be considered an essential part of their overall training.

YMCA Norfolk can support your organisation to become a thriving workplace where staff wellbeing and mental health is talked about and supported.

We deliver a 2 day Adult Mental Health First Aid course which explores common mental health problems and provides the ‘first aiders’ with the confidence and practical tools needed to support colleagues.
