In-House First Aid for Mental Health Courses

Did you know that  37% of all work-related ill health and 45% of all working days lost are due to mental health problems?

By supporting staff with their mental wellbeing, you will see an increase in productivity  and a reduction in costs associated with employees calling in sick.

A better workplace experience, one that supports the wellbeing of employees, will lead to a happier, more dedicated workforce.

 

 

Whether your staff need a mental health first aid certificate, or you would like your team to have a greater awareness should the unexpected arise, we have the course for you. 

In addition to our scheduled courses at locations across Scotland throughout the year, we also offer in house training for groups of up to 16 people. 

All funds raised from our first aid courses go back into Venture Scotland’s programme helping vulnerable young people lead happier lives.
