What Red Umbrella can offer Nottingham Law Society Members

Many companies are instigating MHFA training, but without adequate systems in place  for the employees specific to mental health, or anything in place for the newly accredited MHFA's themselves. We are very unique as the huge advantage to having Red Umbrella provide the accredited 2 day Mental Health First Aid Course and the Half Day Course as we don't just offer the training then leave the participants to their own devices - on their own, we know that a MHFA may well have unpleasant and unexpected conversations with their colleagues and need support and advice not just for their colleagues, but to protect their own mental health as well.

As discussed most companies have an on-site First Aider for when an employee is physically hurt, so why wouldn’t you have a Mental Health First Aider (MHFA) for when an employee is experiencing emotional distress? Just like a first aider, MHFAs are there to place on the plaster until the appropriate person can take over. They are trained to spot early signs of afflictions, gaining the confidence to approach people and ask that prying question: are you really okay?

It is important to consider that despite the skills MHFAs learn, they can be put in uncomfortable and stressful situations. This can cause distress and anxiety to themselves. Other companies will offer MHFA training and then their job with you is done. Within the cost of training, our qualified team support your MHFA's with anything they take on-board via our 24/7 support line and, if necessary, access to our therapists/coaches via Skype. 

What to expect

Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities. We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn.  

Our half day course is an introductory four hour session to raise awareness of mental health.

It is designed to give you:

  • An understanding of what mental health is and how to challenge stigma
  • A basic knowledge of some common mental health issues
  • An introduction to looking after your own mental health and maintaining well being
  • Confidence to support someone in distress or who may be experiencing a mental health issue

Included in the price is:-

All Delegates have 24/7 Access to Support and Advice Telephone Line.

All have access to our experienced MHFA trainers if they have any questions or can talk with a Therapists / Coach / Staff  should the need arise.

All treated completely anonymously We are the only MHFA training provider to offer this vital service.
