Welcome to UK Mental Health and First Aid
Two years ago I was lucky enough to be chosen by my employer to do the Mental Health First Aid course to help employees who may experience Mental Health in the workplace. Working for Virgin Atlantic Airways for 20 years and also being trained in physical first aid, I was able to see first hand what the pressure of being in a demanding and exhausting job can do.
After doing this course I realised that Mental Health First Aid is just as important as physical first aid. As well as volunteering and helping in the wider community, especially around the mental health sector, I achieved my level 2 certificate in awareness of Mental Health problems
With my knowledge, experience and passion I am now able to improve mental health in the workplace and community and I know that my Mental Health First Aid course that I teach can help others to do this also
