Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA)

At Legal & General our Mental Health First Aiders are passionate about supporting the wellbeing of anyone who is experiencing a mental health issue or emotional distress while at work. Like a physical first aider, these are employees that have been trained to recognise the symptoms of mental distress and have the skills and knowledge to provide initial support and signposting for someone who is feeling mentally unwell.

Benefits of having MHFA in your business:

  • More people in your business can respond to mental distress.
  • Empowers employees.
  • Certified and globally recognised qualification.

Have you considered equipping line managers, senior leaders & other employees with MHFA training? If you’re looking to introduce MHFA into your business or for a training refresher, Mind and Mental Health First Aid England offer a range of resources and training courses.
