Mental Health Awareness Day

Did you know at S3 Science we committed to promoting and managing Mental Health within the workplace. As a business, we heavily champion and encourage all staff to have the practical skills, knowledge and confidence to recognise the symptoms of mental health issues. This enables us to support and manage our workers, our technicians, our learners and employers with mental health within the workplace.

 

 

 

Mental Health First Aid Trained – Jo Bradshaw our Programme Director is Mental Health First Aid trained. MHFA was designed to raise awareness of mental health and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. In the same way as learning physical first aid, MHFA teaches people how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health and feel confident to guide someone to appropriate support. Embedding MHFA training within our organisation has helped encourage our staff to talk more freely about mental health, reducing stigma and creating a more positive culture. This is passed onto all stakeholders such as our learners, employers and educational referral partners

We are also Disability Confident
