EvaStore Recognise the Importance of Mental Health Awareness
Did you know?
Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society. Mental ill health is responsible for 91 million working days lost every year!
Mental ill health costs UK employers £34.9 billion each year.
EvaStore are taking this seriously and believe that ‘Mental Health First Aid’ should be just as important as Physical First Aid!
Our General Manager Gary Tait and Sales & Marketing Administrator Jess Jones attended a half day Mental Health Awareness course in September to gain knowledge and get an insight into how people may be affected by ill mental health.
Then following on from that, Jess went on a 2 day Mental Health First Aid course in October. The course taught Jess in-depth skills for providing first aid to people who may be experiencing mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and psychosis.
If you would like to find out more about Mental Health First Aid courses, please visit the MHFA website. We hope they will eventually become complusary alongside physical first aid.
