Mental Health Awareness Week – Free First Aid Course

Mental health is a critical aspect of overall well-being that often goes overlooked or stigmatised. During Mental Health Awareness Week 2023, it’s important to recognise the impact that mental health challenges have on individuals and communities. At Grey Matter Learning, we’re committed to promoting mental health awareness and supporting individuals in need through our free course, Mental Health First Aid.

Did you know that one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year?

This is a staggering statistic that underscores the importance of mental health education and support. But it’s not just the people we care for who can struggle with their mental health. Social care staff are also at risk.

In fact, research has shown that care workers are twice as likely as the general population to experience depression and anxiety.

Mental Health First Aid

We provide mental health education to help social care staff better understand and support the people they care for – and themselves. Our Mental Health First Aid course is designed to help individuals recognise and respond to mental health crises. It covers a wide range of topics, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, and substance abuse disorders. It’s an invaluable resource for anyone looking to learn how to support individuals experiencing mental health challenges.

But that’s not all. We also have a range of other courses that can help improve mental health outcomes, including courses on stress and resilience, dementia care, autism awareness, and mental health awareness. By providing training and education to professionals working with individuals with mental health challenges, we can improve the quality of care and support that they receive.

Mental Health Awareness Week is a great time to remember the importance of mental health and to commit to promoting awareness and support. At Grey Matter Learning, we’re here to help you make a positive impact on mental health outcomes, whether you’re a social care worker, an individual looking to support someone experiencing mental health challenges, or anyone in between.
