Leisure trust invests in 'mental health first aid'

A leisure trust has ensured that all its senior managers are qualified "mental health first aiders", as part of a proactive approach to supporting staff and members who may need help.

Twenty managers at Sandwell Leisure Trust (SLT) attended a bespoke training course to acquire the skills to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

Delivered by specialist provider Inter Wellbeing, the course also helps employees develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone and guide a person towards the right support for recovery or successful management of symptoms.

This could include self-help books or websites, accessing therapy services through their GP or place of work, online self-referral and support groups.

“Mental health awareness and training is an increasingly important area for employers, so we think taking a proactive and positive approach is vital," said SLT business and commercial manager, Mark Wildman.

“Mental health first aid is just as important as physical first aid and should be considered by all organisations, because it can strike at any time and can affect people from all walks of life."

According to the Centre for Mental Health, mental illness costs UK employers an estimated £34.9bn each year – the equivalent of £1,300 for every employee in the workforce.
