Mental Health & Wellbeing

We think it is important to deliver the right training for the right audience – hence with The Healthy Work Company, managers are trained separately in how to deal with mental health issues in their team as they have different legal responsibilities to, for example, those offering first aid support.

Whilst MHFA courses are standardised, any other course we offer can be bespoke to your organisation’s unique culture and challenges.

We offer courses in the following areas

The Healthy Work Company also offers Ofqual regulated qualifications in Mental Health at Work in partnership with Highfield.

These encompass:

We can also offer courses on fatigue, nutrition, fitness and mindfulness.

Mental Health First Aid

The Healthy Work Company currently offers both the one and two day Mental Health First Aid programmes.  This trains volunteers in your organisation to listen non judgementally to a peer who is in mental distress and signpost them to other support.  We advise on implementation strategies to ensure the correct boundaries are in place for your first aiders for mental health.

First Aider Support

We can support your first aiders for mental health by supplying half day sessions incorporating CPD on mental health related topics and facilitated meetings to discuss progress. An example of this would be our 2 hour programme on fatigue and energy.

Influencing Skills

Telling people what to do, bullying or only using the authority of your position will not buy intrinsic motivation. We run influencing skills programmes using actors for:

Site Managers

In a high pressure environment where “programme” is king, tempers can get frayed. This course was developed together with Mount Anvil with Site Managers in mind, but is relevant to anyone working in a construction environment.

Health & Safety Managers

This course has been developed to provide a basic skill-set in influencing. Engaging and interactive, the course looks at empathy and emotional intelligence, the keys to influencing, your personal influencing style and practical active non-judgemental listening skills.

General Mental Health Awareness

General Mental Health Awareness courses are knowledge based qualifications which offer an understanding of the mental health continuum and the basics of resilience.

Mental Health Awareness For Managers

Mental Health Awareness for Managers provide managers with an understanding of how to have a conversation with someone struggling with mental distress cognisant of the Equalities Act.

First Aid For Mental Health

First Aid for Mental Health can be delivered any where in the world because next points of support and the role of the First Aider in your organisation are tailored to you and the country it is delivered in.
