Mental Health First Aid England Online Course
Do you support the mental health of your diverse team? Our Mental Health First Aid England (MHFA) course will teach you how to safeguard the mental wellbeing of your team and help create a positive working environment.
Poor mental health leads to 70 million lost working days each year and has a massive impact on the hair and beauty industry! As a trained mental health first aider you will be able to help protect the mental health of your team whatever 2021 throws at them.
The course will be delivered online in February and is available to both members and non-members. You will learn about:
