Cintre recently ran a Mental Health First Aid Awareness training via online video conferencing platform Zoom. Although a new way of carrying out this kind of training for Cintre, it was very successful.

The half-day session followed the agenda from Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England which offers expert guidance and training to support mental health, in the workplace and beyond.
The training covered areas such as:
- Understanding what mental health is and how to challenge stigma
- Common mental health issues
- An introduction to looking after employees’ own mental health and maintaining wellbeing
- Confidence to support someone in distress or who may be experiencing a mental health issue.
