Why train and become a Mental Health First Aider?

  • The UK is at risk of becoming a ‘burnt-out nation', mental health charity warns and calls for action. This means that early intervention and support by the UK Government is needed to intervene and better support the workforce.
  • A major challenge being high levels of work absence due to poor mental health still remains problematic.
  • A recent survey revealed in the past year, more than a third of adults faced extreme pressure in the workplace. Futhermore, complicated by the fact that the nation is within the transition period of recovery from the pandemic, long term covid, high churn in redundancies, lack of job security, financial econmic crisis impacting on cost of living for all.
  • YouGov poll of 2,060 adults- 1,132 whom are workers - 35% stated they had experienced high/extreme levels of pressure at work, this meant 20% requiring time off due to poor mental health caused by work related stress/stressors in the past year.
  • Although public attitudes, understanding and views towards mental health and work have changed in response to the pandemic, hence still alot more to be done. Together we can do more and make an impactful difference, both towards our own mental health and the Public Mental Health and Wellbeing of others.
