Is becoming a Mental Health First Aider important to you or your company? There is an increasing number of people becoming more open about their mental health including within the emergency services industry. It is important to recognise the role senior managers play here and to take steps to improve advice and help channels. Research has shown over 91% of Police staff have stated they have suffered stress or poor mental health. (MIND)
- Are you finding that you want to help colleagues, friends or family but don’t feel confident?
- Would you like to know how to support those experiencing different levels of mental health so that you can help?
- Would you like to find out more about depression, stress and anxiety?
We are working alongside Tom Fox, who is a certified MHFA England trainer and who has learned to deal with his own personal issues. He has trained as a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) instructor as well as being a plenary speaker for MHFA England.
What are the benefits of being involved in Mental Health First Aid?
How would you or your company benefit from becoming Mental Health First Aiders? In the UK over 300,000 people lose their jobs due to mental illness which means loss of quality staff and experience. What you will find even more staggering is that mental illness costs UK businesses 8 billion pounds per year. What Tom Fox has found since accepting his condition, is that he is in a unique position to offer help to you and your company.
Tom didn’t realise for a long time that he was ill or when it had gradually got much worse. He has suffered from memory loss, as well as struggling to sleep and furthermore he is hyper-vigilant. This has led to him experiencing panic attacks and recognising what a debilitating mental illness it can be.

How will you grow from being more aware of Mental Health?
When you start out on a journey of learning generally you don’t always know what you will gain. What you will find from working with Tom and the team is that you will become more aware of the stigma and discrimination around mental illness. On the course, your awareness will improve in many areas for example;
- What is mental health?
- How to recognise the symptoms of depression.
- A Mental Health First Aid action plan.
- Suicide figures and first aid to assist in a crisis.
- Risk factors of depression and how to recognise it in the workplace.
This is only the basic outline of the course and the two day content of the Mental Health First Aider course is far greater. If you are not convinced by now, just a few words from Tom Fox as to why he started his work.
