Mental Health Words

For Employers

Studies suggest that a positive work environment is the key to increasing productivity and workers who are happy in their work tend to be proactive, creative and have better problem-solving abilities.

The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) states that ‘employers have a legal duty of care to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of all their employees’, by raising awareness of Mental Health within your organisation and equipping staff and managers with the skills to competently manage and risk assess situations, your organisation will be able to meet its legal duty, contribute to a reduction in sickness absence and improve productivity

For Fitness Professionals

Around 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem every year. Every week, 1 in 6 people in England are reporting a common mental health problem such as depression or anxiety.

Regular exercise is a powerful tool to combat mental health issues. Studies estimate that 30 minutes of physical activity per day, over a period of 3 to 5 days, can improve the symptoms of depression. Exercise affects the chemistry of the human body, working as a powerful natural antidepressant with no harmful side effects.Exercise stimulates the body and the mind, combatting feelings of sadness, anxiety, irritability, stress, fatigue, anger and lack of self-confidence.

This qualification will increase your awareness and understanding of mental health, how common mental health illness is and how to reduce stigma and discrimination surrounding it.

Awarded by Active IQ, the course combines both theoretical elements and practical application, equipping you with the basic skills required to carry out the procedures of mental health first aid and be able to respond appropriately when others are experiencing a mental health crisis.
