Mental Health First Aid and Its Benefits: IOSH Regional Branch Meeting

On Thursday 15th March, Director Barrie Penrose delivered a speech on Mental Health First Aid at the IOSH Regional Branch meeting on Mental Health at York Race Course.

As an accredited MHFA trainer, the professional health and safety membership organisation invited Barrie to share information about Mental Health First Aid training. Accredited by Mental Health First Aid England, the training and support materials provide a step by step approach to help organisations to create a healthy environment introduce awareness-raising initiatives, identify the first signs of mental ill health and support staff who are experiencing an issue.
