Why Mental Wellbeing Training is important in The Public Sector
Working in the public sector can be a rewarding and fulfilling occupation and having a fulfilling job can be good for your mental health and general wellbeing. However, we all have times when life gets on top of us - sometimes that's work-related, or sometimes it's something else such as our health, our relationships, or our circumstances.
Therefore, it's vital that we help support mental health at work for those with existing problems, for those at risk, and for the workforce as a whole.
We believe that the mental health needs of all individuals should be treated with equal importance and be openly discussed and supported in the same way people do about their physical health needs. All too often people living with mental health problems still experience stigma and discrimination, many people struggle to get the right help at the right time.
We want our Mental Wellbeing Training courses to create a culture where we can all talk openly about mental health and seek support and guidance when it is most needed. This is extremely important for care homes.
We show them how to start a supportive conversation and signpost to agencies to seek appropriate professional help.
Our Mental Wellbeing Training courses are suitable for all sectors. Through our comprehensive training we are able to provide people with the skills they need to support their own and others' wellbeing.
Our training enables and supports people to recognise the signs of mental ill health, listen and be non-judgemental in their approach. This is the equivalent of physical health first aid training but for mental health.
