You wouldn’t question a First Aider in the workplace to handle physical health issues, so why would handle Mental Health issues differently?
In 2018/19 work related stress, anxiety or depression accounted for 44% of all work-related ill health, and 54% of all working days lost to ill health.
This isn’t a new issue, its been prevalent for years but has been heightened by the recent pandemic.
1 in 5 (21%) of adults experienced some form of depression in early 2021; this is more than double pre- pandemic, so it is more crucial than ever that we understand the importance of supporting the mental health of our people, particularly in the workplace.
Joined by a qualified Mental Health First Aider, we answer a number of questions to gain an insight and discuss the role of a MHFA as well as the importance of having on within the workplace.
