Why is it beneficial?

Mental Health First Aid Training is beneficial because it helps individuals recognize and respond appropriately to mental health crisis. After completing MHFA Training with The Training Suite you’ll be able to identify the warning signs of common mental health disorders, how to assess the risk of suicide or self-harm, and how to provide comfort and support to those in distress. Mental Health First Aiders may also be able to connect those in need with professional help. Ultimately, Mental Health First Aid Training can help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues and create a more supportive and understanding community.


Having people who are mental health first aid trained in a business can provide several benefits. They can offer support and assistance to colleagues who may be experiencing mental health issues, creating a more supportive and empathetic workplace culture. This can increase employee well-being, productivity and retention. Mental Health First Aiders can also help to identify mental health concerns early on, preventing them from becoming more severe issues. By promoting Mental Health First Aid, businesses can prioritize mental health alongside physical health, ultimately creating a healthier and happier workforce.
