About The Mental Health Courses

NEBOSH Working with Wellbeing

NEBOSH National Award in Working with Wellbeing is a comprehensive course designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively manage health and wellbeing in the workplace. By understanding the importance of wellbeing and implementing practical initiatives, you can create a more supportive and productive work environment for your employees.

Mental Health Awareness

The Ligtas Mental Health Awareness Course has been designed to educate your staff on mental health issues and promote a supportive work environment. Boost productivity, reduce stigma, and improve employee wellbeing.

Why Mental Health Awareness is a Priority for Organisations

In today’s fast-paced work environment, mental health has become a crucial aspect of overall employee wellbeing. According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), in 2020/21, stress, depression, or anxiety accounted for the majority of days lost due to work-related ill health in 2021/22, 17.0 million and 7.3 million, respectively.

By making mental health awareness a priority, organisations can:

  • Demonstrate a commitment to corporate social responsibility: Prioritising mental health shows your dedication to the wellbeing of your employees and the community.
  • Ensure compliance with legislation: Understanding the legal requirements surrounding mental health can help your organisation meet its obligations and avoid potential fines or legal issues.

  • Create a healthier workplace: Providing employees with tools to manage stress and mental health issues can lead to a more productive and supportive work environment.
  • Raise Awareness of Mental Illnesses: Mental health training normalises conversations around common mental health illnesses like depression and anxiety. By fostering an environment where employees feel comfortable discussing their mental health, organisations can ensure that no one suffers in silence and prevent disengagement or withdrawal.
  • Encourage Early Intervention for Recovery: Preventing poor mental health is more effective than addressing issues once they’ve developed. Mental health training equips employees and managers with the skills to recognise early warning signs and encourage professional help when necessary, reducing the likelihood of mild symptoms becoming severe and facilitating easier recovery.
  • Reduce Stigma Around Mental Health Issues: Mental health training helps create an informed and supportive organisational response to employees experiencing mental health issues. This understanding benefits employees, makes organisations more attractive to new talent, and helps retain existing staff.
  • Improve staff morale: Employees who feel supported in their mental health are more likely to be engaged, loyal, and satisfied with their jobs.
  • Cut sickness absence: Proactive mental health management can help reduce the number of days lost due to mental health-related issues.

The Impact on Brand, Reputation, and Culture

Investing in mental health courses can significantly impact your organisation’s brand, reputation, and culture. A commitment to mental health demonstrates that your company values its employees, which can attract top talent and improve your public image. Also, fostering a supportive workplace culture can increase employee satisfaction, higher retention rates and create a more productive work environment.
