Code: ESC/21/390 Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace - delivered via MS Teams (EVENT FULL)

This is a blended learning approach and requires you to complete some pre-course work. A link to the online learning will be sent to you by the trainer nearer the time. The work must be completed in order to become a qualified and accredited Mental Health First Aider.

The guidance from MHFA England suggests the following pre course durations

Individual Learning Session 4 : 2 hr

This course is for ESCC employees to train as Mental Health First Aiders to support their colleagues in the workplace. Please ensure you read the attached ‘MHFA supporting guidance and commitments’ document and the information below carefully as this contains full information about the course and the MHFA scheme.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised two day accredited training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. There are four sessions to this course, 2 on each of 2 days, and allowing ample time for coffee/comfort breaks.

MHFA training won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. The MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured Instructor accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, who are trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.

You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone whilst keeping yourself safe.

  • To releasing your staff member for the two day training course, plus any post support sessions (approx. 2 sessions lasting a maximum of 3 hours each).
  • To releasing your staff member for related meetings and/or training (approximately 2 per year).

Code: ASC/21/1132 Wellbeing Workshop for NST Staff (Cancelled)

In response to Covid 19 and the extra stress and strain this has put on services, we are offering 6 workshops specifically for NST staff. The workshops will explore the impact of the past 18 months and give you the opportunity for some space to think and reflect.  You only need to attend ONE of these workshops.

We will explore how hard it is to remain positive during this prolonged period of uncertainty, and consider how neuroscience can help.

It will also be a time to share with colleagues and learn from each other about tips and tricks for sustaining your wellbeing.

Finally, there will be a chance to consider your own wellbeing and self care, and explore a range of resources available.
