This year I attended an event hosted by EY led by MHFAEngland where they launched their new Instructor’s pack, new branding – including logo – and vision for the future. The audience were fellow Instructors across MHFAEngland’s core product offering – Standard, Youth and Armed Forces MHFA.
It was great to see a video message from global leaders in the field of Mental Health First Aid and know what we are doing really does make a difference.
The stats on courses run in England look promising too:
115,294 – Standard 24,259 – Youth 7,782 – Armed Forces
So the word is clearly spreading……………..
The theme for the day was ‘Take 10 to Talk’. Shouldn’t this be part of our DNA everyday? Let’s start noticing those around us and spotting those subtle, early changes to start a conversation.
Train 1 in 10 people in Mental Health First Aid
Ensure business and communities see Mental Health on parity with Physical Health
For everyone to seek help for mental health issues without fear of discrimination
Interesting to see Norman Lamb MP is setting in motion the beginning legal journey to make mental health a partity with physical health within all businesses.
Now, wouldn’t that be something?
What do you think?
Should businesses be made to have trained Mental Health First Aiders?
