As a society we are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of good mental health. S I Sealy recognises the importance of mental health, and has therefore invested in Mental Health First Aid training.
The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training course taught our team how to identify, assist, and understand individuals who may be experiencing a mental health issue. The course will help our team members recognise the signs of mental ill health, and has provided an insight into the skills and confidence required to approach and assist someone in a safe manner.
The team have learnt how to encourage someone to seek out support that they may need for recovery or symptom management, including a number of therapy services, support groups, self-help books, online resources, and more.
The MHFA course has also helped our team to understand how to promote positive wellbeing while also challenging the mental health stigma around them.
