Mental Health 101

Mental Health 101 enables your staff to recognise signs and symptoms and make a first response to help their co-workers.

Good workplace mental health awareness, wellbeing and mindfulness is associated with improved staff engagement, reduced absenteeism, increased productivity, workplace harmony, improved morale and higher job satisfaction. Mental health first aid is the help given to someone developing a mental health issue, such as depression, anxiety, stress or substance misuse or, who is in a mental health crisis.

Mental health first aid is given as a first response until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves. Mental health first aid is most relevant in situations when it is first becoming apparent to others that a person in their family or community, which includes their social and/or professional environment, is developing a mental health problem.


Our Mental Health 101 course provides participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to identify early stage mental health issues such as the onset of depression, anxiety, stress or substance misuse. They will learn strategies to help deal with that person and to help maintain and improve mental health in the workplace.


“This course was brilliant and just what we needed. The facilitator was enthusiastic and engaging and the content really hit the bullseye. I will be recommending this to everyone I know.”
