ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH & LIFE

Mental health issues sap society of its vitality by standing in the way of human potential. The unfortunate reality is that countless people in the UK have their lives undermined by mental health issues that go undiagnosed and untreated. 

Mental Health and Life came about as a way to address those underserved by the current mental health infrastructure, to give them the means to regain control of their lives, and to benefit society as a whole by way of the Mental Health First Aid Course and other vehicles.

There is no magic wand one can wave to alleviate mental health issues in our society. It is a problem that must be addressed one individual at a time. At Mental Health and Life we are committed to helping those individuals, whoever they may be. 

Antiquated notions of dealing with mental health issues, such as exhibiting a stiff upper lip, simply aren’t good enough anymore. Real answers are needed. As such, we offer an array of courses for addressing and overcoming real-world mental health challenges.

Some of our courses train people to offer productive assistance to those in need. While others provide individuals experiencing mental health issues a way to better understand their situation, while also providing them with the tools they need to cope.

By expanding awareness of mental health issues and providing the means for people to effectively deal with their condition we hope to contribute to a healthier, more fully realised society.

Armed Forces MHFA Mental Health Aware Course

Members of the Armed Forces are often subjected to experiences the rest of us can barely imagine. Many return to civilian life mentally and emotionally scarred by these experiences but with few places they can turn to for help and few sympathetic ears in the wider community.

This half-day Mental Health First Aid Course is designed to address the mental health needs of members and former members of the Armed Forces, and to provide others with the means to support those in distress. You will examine common mental health issues affecting modern warriors, the stigma faced by many returning from conflict zones and how to monitor your own mental health and wellness.

Mental Health First Aid Courses – more information

Every company in the UK must ensure that its employees are provided with first aid from qualified personnel if it is ever needed during their time at work. However, this first aid is limited to dealing solely with medical conditions that affect the physical body: there are no laws requiring companies to offer mental health first aid and as a consequence, very few do.

A similar situation exists in most households around the country. Many people keep a small first aid kit in their home: plasters, bandages, antiseptic wipes etc. but when it comes to mental health, they make no preparations. We are working hard to change this situation by providing mental health first aid courses led by qualified instructors that are accessible to corporate clients and individual clients alike.

All of our mental health first aid courses are delivered by fully qualified and experienced instructors who have an in-depth knowledge of mental health first aid techniques and practices. Whether you would like to educate yourself so you can help other members of your family or you are looking for a way to raise the awareness of your workforce as far as mental health first aid is concerned, you will find that our courses meet all your needs.

Each course is structured in such a way as to make it easy for participants to familiarise themselves with mental health warning signs and the appropriate action to take when a mental health emergency is encountered, either in the workplace or at home.

Although there is no current legal obligation for employers to provide mental health first aid, this is likely to change in the future and, even now, it is wise to ensure that at least basic first aid is provided for mental health emergencies.

The law states that companies in the UK have a duty of care as far as the health, safety and welfare of their employees are concerned. By organising mental health first aid courses, you can help to keep your entire workforce safer.
