International Women's & Happiness Awareness Month

"Mental ill health costs UK employers £34.9 billion each year – the equivalent of £1,300 for every employee in the UK workforce. This figure consists of £10.6 billion in sickness absence, £21.2 billion in reduced productivity, and £3.1 billion in replacing staff who leave their jobs for mental health-related reason."

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course developed by MHFA England. MHFA England training programme is accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health.

The online course teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health, gain the confidence to act promptly and the skills to guide someone towards the right help. In the same way as we learn physical first aid, online mental health first aid teaches you how to recognise those crucial warning signs and react, even in a crisis and potentially stop a crisis from happening.

PACT HR's Mental Health First Aid course is delivered by Mental Health First Aid Instructor Member Simon Brannan.

The online course delivers the same learning outcomes of the face-to-face Adult MHFA Two Day course in an accessible and flexible online format. The course is structured around a blend of individual learning and four live sessions:
