The change and uncertainty caused by the pandemic has shifted how many of us view our mental health, and whereas many get on with their daily lives unchanged, others do become unwell and require support. Research has shown than in 2020 there was a 10% increase in the number of days off work due to mental ill health compared to the year before, at a total cost to UK business of £14bn per year.  Mental Health is vital and can affect the way we think feel or behave. Embedding First Aid for Mental Health training into your organisation, promotes people to talk more freely about Mental Health, reduces stigma, encourages early intervention and enables recovery, helping to prevent presenteeism or Long Term Sickness.
