Blossom Mental Health Training Ltd consults and trains in the field of mental health and wellbeing. Our expertise is in helping organisations design strategies that support staff wellbeing and create a culture of inclusion and support around mental ill-health.
We work with you to design a bespoke Mental Health Strategy that can include:
Good employers want their staff to learn how to spot early signs of mental distress and how to initiate supportive conversations before it escalates.
Being proactive and investing in mental health skills and suicide awareness training now will give your business competitive advantages too. Mental health is no longer seen as a training add-on; we predict it will be the next mandatory learning, alongside traditional First Aid and Health and Safety skills. Wellbeing is already enshrined in the new United Nations definition of business sustainability, recognised in 2015 as one of the Sustainable Development Goals
In 2017 the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) introduced 6 Management Standards that can help employers put processes in place for properly managing work-related stress. Line managers who train with us are shown the six key areas of work design that will minimise pressure, manage potential stressors and limit the negative impact that the work could have on your employees.
Our founder, Anita Malster, brings additional expertise from having served many traditionally male-dominated industries all around the UK (such as construction, engineering, tech, manufacturing, utilities and power networks, transport and logistics) and supporting apprentices and graduates as they enter the world of corporate leadership.
Anita has been delivering Mental Health First Aid Training for ten years, and in addition to running Blossom, She is a National Trainer for Mental Health First Aid England.
Blossom Mental Health Training Ltd is a CITB (Construction industry Training Board) fully approved training organisation (ATO). Grants are available from CITB towards the cost of booking our construction focused MHFA training courses.
We firmly believe face-to-face training delivers a powerful learning experience, which factors in time for discussion, sharing of experiences and can support the disclosure of any mental health distress within a safe place.
However, logistics often warrant delivery of training online. Many of our courses have been designed and adapted for online delivery, where we create a secure and intimate space for people to access learning and share experiences.
We can deliver at your own site
or on a virtual platform.
If you don’t have enough employees to warrant an in-house course some training for individuals is also available via our open learning courses.
