I must admit that despite being an employer for over 11 years, I have never really thought about having someone trained in Mental Health First Aid before. We have a very open culture and I hope that every member of our team would feel comfortable in discussing any mental health issues they may have but even then I now realise that we are not set up to respond or deal with the issues professionally.

This idea was first introduced to me only a few weeks ago by a specialist called Altruist Enterprises.

Investing in a Mental Health First Aider is a "no brainer" for me and we will be, will you?
