Mental Health Awareness in the Workplace

Now available online!

Here at SkillBase First Aid, alongside our training courses we also deliver talks, presentations and workshops in the workplace.

Topics include:

  • General mental health awareness
  • Mental health in the workplace
  • Stress management
  • First aid for depression
  • Mindfulness

These can be tailored to your place of work, and involve group activities designed to engage, educate and promote mental health awareness amongst employees – to let all your people meet the challenges of the workplace head on.

Talks and presentations are bespoke to your workplace and vary in timings. Workplaces typically choose a 1-2 hour presentation as an introduction to Mental Health and Wellbeing in the workplace. These bitesize sessions can also be designed to support existing training in the workplace, for example, providing your Mental Health First Aider’s with an upskill in subject areas or providing them with a supportive coaching session to enhance the impact of their first aider role in the workplace.

All our bespoke talks, presentations and group coaching sessions can be delivered live online or at your place of work, with one of our accredited trainers.
