Mental Health First Aider Network

Ongoing support and education

The pandemic has taken a toll on the nation’s wellbeing with record numbers experiencing poor mental health. Now is the ideal time to ensure that your mental health first aiders are supported and ready to assist with this challenge.

Our education and support programme for mental health first aiders helps organisations prioritise mental health at work. The programme provides ongoing learning and development with specific focus on mental health first aid and workplace wellbeing.
