Mental Health Training – Delivered by Mental Health Charter CiC

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training for SMEs, Scaleups and Startups

At DiSRUPT we take Mental Health seriously. That is why we have partnered with the incredible Mental Health Charter who can provide mental health training and consultancy support that is bespoke, and that is delivered in the language and tone that is right for your business.

If you are looking to support the mental health and wellbeing of your employees then DiSRUPT and Mental Health Charter are here to help.

Creating a workplace where your employees feel supported, understood, and valued is highly important to every organisation. A workplace where mental health is prioritised and where your employees are equipped with the tools and knowledge to manage their own mental health and support their colleagues.

That's where DiSRUPT comes in with exclusive prices for the Mental Health Charter - Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training course which teaches people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue.

What is Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)?

MHFA won’t teach you to be a therapist, but it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.

You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone while keeping yourself safe. You’ll also learn how to empower someone to access the support they might need for recovery or successful management of symptoms.

You can take huge steps as an employer to give the right support for your employees with Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training

Who are Mental Health Charter?

The Mental Health Charter is a social movement to change the way people think and act about mental health challenges. The charter started in 2020 and is growing year on year! We support leaders in work and in communities to deliver change and help people with lived experiences of mental health challenges to stamp out stigma through their own charter activities. But there is still more to be done to change attitudes and behaviour.

We support workplaces by:  

  • Encouraging them to make a public commitment by joining the Workplace Mental Health Charter, using our resources and supporting their workplace's Mental Health
  • Working with them to develop robust action plans to help them turn their commitment into real change  
  • Empowering employee champions, with lived experience of mental health challenges, to stamp out stigma and encourage conversation educating as many as possible on where and when to seek help.​
  • Providing the tools to deliver lasting change through ongoing support, training and networking.
