A Mental Health Audit (or Wellbeing Audit) is an analytical tool to help an organisation understand where their starting point is (A) with advice and recommendations on how to get to where they need to be (B). This is the best starting point for any organisation and is based on real assessment instead of assumptions.
Developed by MHFA England, this two-day course qualifies delegates as mental health first aiders. This is essential for organisations who need to have an understanding of what mental health is and what factors can affect the wellbeing of their employees. The course teaches delegates practical skills to spot the signs of mental illness and gives them the confidence to step in and support a person who needs assistance.
All employers are required to conduct a mental health risk assessment to meet their Duty of Care (HSE). Our survey helps to identify the risks within the workplace so that employers can make the necessary adjustments and put safety measures in to manage the risks.
Prevention is always better than cure! This course helps people to identify the signs of poor mental health, providing the knowledge and confidence to offer help and support.
Following on from Mental Health Awareness training, employers may wish to identify volunteer ambassadors that are first point of contact regarding mental health. Ambassadors may also be instrumental in arranging wellbeing activities and creating groups or forums to discuss mental wellbeing and health.
