Introduction to - Mental Health First Aid
James & Angellah Brayshaw will be discussing the value of reducing the stigma associated with mental health, decreasing social distancing that is often present, and increasing the mental health literacy of culture. All this will be framed within the message that, with an improved understanding of how common mental health problems are, we can begin to shift the cultural consciousness in a way that will lead to earlier intervention for those with mental health problems. They will also be discussing:
- giving appropriate and meaningful attention to mental health problems in society and the workplace
- how workplaces will begin to see a reduction in absenteeism and presenteeism
- how workplaces will enjoy increased productivity and job satisfaction for employees in the workplace.
