Staff wellbeing and the issue of mental health is increasingly important in business and the Norse Group is pleased to offer accredited Mental Health First Aid training for the staff of Chamber members in February at our bespoke training centre in Norwich.

A Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training course teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue. The programme explores mental health, dispels myths, and most importantly gives candidates the tools to have conversations about mental health and support colleagues to seek help.

MHFA will not teach someone to be a therapist, but it will teach delegates to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and potentially stop a crisis from developing. Delegates learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone in a safe way.  The programme is MHFA England accredited and delegates receive valuable resource materials and workbooks.

Qualified MHFA trainer Mark Surridge is running an open programme in Norwich on 18 and 19 February  and a limited number of spaces are available at £270 each, which is £30 lower than the MHFA recommended rate. A recent delegate from Leathes-Prior commented: “Mark was an excellent trainer. He was incredibly engaging and clearly very passionate about the area.”
