Becoming Mental Health First Aiders
Throughout November, Edge Trainer Dal provided Mental Health First Aid training for Edge staff. Edge are investing in mental health training because we know the benefits it will have for our staff, in both their job and also outside of work.
The training is helping staff recognise the signs of poor mental health in themselves and in others. This knowledge will not only help them to handle any crisis, but also allow them to intervene before distress becomes an emergency.
All of the Edge team have either been trained or will be trained in 2022, with the aim to have all Edge staff accredited as Mental Health First Aiders by the end of 2022.
We are also excited to announce that in 2022, Edge will be offering online Mental Health First Aid. To find out more about the various training that Edge offers, please click here.
