Interested in becoming a Mental Health First Aider?

Posted: 5th April 2019

Green Cross Training are running Mental Health First Aid courses in your local area. 

The fee is £225 plus vat per person for Edinburgh Chamber members (saving money compared to other providers), with the following dates scheduled:

  • 6th & 7th May – Edinburgh – full
  • 22nd & 23rd May – Edinburgh (additional date)
  • 4th & 5th July – Edinburgh
  • 2nd & 3rd September – Edinburgh
  • 18th & 19th November – Edinburgh

Every employer should think about the impact of poor mental health. Illnesses cost UK businesses approximately £26 million per year: equivalent to £1,000 per employee.

The course will not teach you to be a therapist but help to break the stigma and discrimination surrounding Mental Health and will teach you to listen, reassure and respond.

You can secure your place today by visiting www.greencrosstraining.com or call Kerry on 0330 120 0105 Ext 236.

This course we believe will be the best investment your company has ever made.
