Meet our newest, qualified Mental Health First Aiders
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England provide support and training to educate people about poor mental health. Their course teaches people about poor mental health, how to identify people who are struggling, how to offer immediate first aid and/or how to signpost to the right professional help. This includes suicide awareness and how to support someone who may be having suicidal thoughts.
At Springfield Healthcare, we are proud to share that we now have another 18 qualified MHFAiders across the group.
Adele Burton, Employee Wellbeing Lead at Springfield Healthcare, said “My hope is that staff will feel comfortable to approach our Mental Health First Aiders if they are struggling with anything. I want staff to know that it is ok not to be okay and to know that they should not feel embarrassed if they are suffering with poor mental health. I want them to approach us and talk about it so we can help.”
