Mental Health in the Workplace

Mental wellbeing is one of the top two issues for the workplace, therefore we were not at all surprised to see the huge take up of Mental Health First Aid lite as part of our delivery with Public Health in the East of England.

Business in the Community supports employers to access Mental Health First Aid Lite, which in some areas is funded by Public health or can be privately funded through our accredited MHFA trainers, who have a wealth of experience working with employers to improve the understanding of Mental Wellbeing.
