Mental Health and Wellbeing Training Courses

Our mental health awareness courses are designed to start conversations about mental health and support employees who are experiencing mental ill-health. According to a Business in the Community report, 61% of employees have experienced a mental health problem due to work and one in three have been formally diagnosed with a mental health issue. It’s clear that it’s more important than ever to ensure that your staff have the tools and support they need to manage mental health in the workplace.

The British Safety Council works in partnership with Mates in Mind to address mental wellbeing in the workplace. If you would like support in developing or optimizing an existing mental health and wellbeing champion or first aid model, please contact the Mates in Mind team.
