Employers have a legal duty of care to their employees. This includes providing a safe working environment and taking reasonable care to prevent mental or physical harm that may occur in the workplace. The Mental Health First Aid course will equip key team members with the knowledge and skills to support colleagues and the general public within the workplace.
