Time to make mental health a priority
Secondsight and Minding Your Business show their support for the ‘Take 10 Together’ campaign on World Mental Health Day.
The employee benefits specialist, Secondsight and mental health charity, Minding Your Business, are calling on employers across the UK to help remove the stigma surrounding mental health issues by educating their staff and encouraging discussion – making mental health a top priority.
The organisations’ approach ties in with this year’s World Mental Health Day theme of ‘Psychological and Mental Health First Aid For All’. Together, they have recently launched a series of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses tailored to HR and wellbeing teams across organisations.
Morag Livingston, group risk and healthcare manager at Secondsight, added: “Our two-day MHFA course is designed to provide attendees with comprehensive knowledge of learning to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental ill-health.
“Evidence for MHFA shows that those who attend the course have the understanding and confidence to provide support.”
