About Mental Health First Aid NI

Mental Health First Aid and Training Courses Northern Ireland & Belfast
P Berry Group established in 2006, is a local training company based in County Antrim, Northern Ireland and even serves companies based in Belfast is managed by Paul Berry. We deliver high quality courses across Northern Ireland including Mental Health First Aid. Every course is delivered by highly professional, qualified and skilled instructors all of whom have years of experience in delivering courses in a relaxed environment with a professional and fun manner.

When thinking of mental health it’s important to understand that the mental wellness of a company’s staff is inextricably linked to the wellness of the company as a whole. A good company will be aware that the tolls of gainful employment affect us all, and can amplify or even trigger mental health issues with your staff. At Mental Health First Aid we provide Northern Ireland inclusive of Belfast with a variety of different mental health training courses, from our first aid courses which help to quickly identify, and work with your employees to help minimise any harm to them.

Throughout our training courses we use a humanistic approach to help discuss what is often a delicate subject. Everyone has been, will be, or knows somebody who is affected by mental health issues. We believe how you approach these issues are one of the most important aspects of a well thought out mental health strategy and will not only help your business, but most importantly will help those afflicted by such issues within your company. We’re sure just like ourselves you look at our company as a big family, so we’ll help you fulfil the supportive needs of a company that is concerned with the mental health and wellness of its staff.

One in four people in the UK will have a mental health problem at some point in their lives. While mental health problems are common, most are mild, tend to be short-term and are normally successfully treated, with medication, by a GP.

Courses
Each year approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health condition and at least 1 in 6 employees experience common mental health problems in the workplace. Research has shown that work is the biggest cause of stress which can stop people performing at their best.

Mental health conditions are often hidden due to stigma and fear of discrimination and research has shown that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers. The HSE guidance ‘First aid needs assessment’ refers to mental health in the workplace.
