This week aims to tackle stigma and help everyone understand and prioritise their own mental health as well as others’ mental health.

At Halton BID/Halton Chamber we understand that there is an increased focus on an employer’s responsibility to account for the mental health of their employees.

We have therefore scheduled to run “First Aid for Mental Health Level 2” on the 22nd July 2024.

This 6-hour qualification provides learners with the knowledge to recognise a range of mental health conditions, how to start a supportive conversation and when and how to signpost a person to seek appropriate professional help. Learners will know how to recognise and manage stress and understand the impact of substance abuse. They will learn about the first aid action plan for mental health, be able to put it in place and know how to implement a positive mental health culture in the workplace.
