Mental Health Awareness Training

The charity Mind states that 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health issue each year. You may be working with someone experiencing a mental health problem in your own workplace right now. Would you know how to support them?

Our courses at TLCT are designed to help identify, support, and manage mental health issues in the workplace. Each course enables a positive approach to be taken within the workplace, provides confidence in having those all-important conversations and aids in the removal of the stigma so often associated with mental health issues.

A healthy workplace undoubtedly will reduce sickness absence and accidents whilst increasing productivity.

All of our courses are listed below. Please feel free to contact us if you would like more information.

Employers Duty of Care

Mental Health first aid training is not a legal requirement however, the Health and Safety Executive states:

Whether work is causing the health issue or aggravating it, employers have a legal responsibility to help their employees. Work-related mental health issues must be assessed to measure the levels of risk to staff. Where a risk is identified, steps must be taken to remove it or reduce it as far as reasonably practicable. HSE
It is an employer’s duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business. Employers must do whatever is reasonably practicable to achieve this.

Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) 1974

This Act places a legal duty on employers to ensure, so far as reasonably practicable, the health, safety, and welfare of employees, and to ensure that employees and others are kept safe.

Frequently Asked Questions

Mental Health is just as important as physical health, yet whilst we know how to take care of our own physical health, many people do not know how to support relatives, friends and even colleagues who are experiencing poor mental health. By developing a greater understanding of common mental health issues, as well as how best to support and guide someone to professional help, you can help further reduce the stigma associated with mental health in the UK. Sickness absenteeism and accidents will be reduced, whilst productivity will increase.

Our Awareness course is ½ a day (3.5 hours). L2 Understanding Mental Health in the Workplace is 1 day (7 hours). L3 Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace 2 days (14 hours).
