We are proud that members of the GEC team completed their Mental Health First Aid training in December. We asked Hayley, one of our First Aiders;
Why did you feel it was important to implement mental health first aiders within the GEC team?
We felt it was important to implement mental health first aiders into the GEC team so that we are more confident in looking out for each other; and have the skills to be able to notice, listen and signpost someone in need of support. This is a hugely valuable skill; not just to be able to look out for each other, but also awareness of our own mental health; to support our customers and clients who we have come to know so well and might be able to spot when they are struggling with their own mental health.
