Mental health and well-being have been hot topics in the national news, and at Hillcroft we value the health and well-being of staff.
Throughout September and October, workshops were held at our Slyne Training Academy, led by one of our Mental Health First Aiders, David Thompson.
David, along with Gill Reynolds and Debbie Hagel, recently qualified as Mental Health First Aiders with St John’s Ambulance.
David, said: ” It is very important that members of staff are given all the information they need and have someone they can go and talk to as well as having someone there who will listen to them without feeling judged.”
The first aiders understand the stigma that exists around mental health and have been trained to spot the early signs of mental health issues and can offer initial help and advice.
Don’t the reception areas look great?
