General Mental Health & Wellbeing Level 1



Keep your team healthy, both physically and mentally.

The importance of mental health in the workplace is becoming recognised by more and more employers. But part and parcel of that is wellbeing, and ensuring that people know how to look after themselves in a positive way.

  • The benefits of staying fit and healthy
  • The effects of alcohol consumption and how to find support and advice on smoking and drug-related problems
  • How to find support on sexual health and relationships, mental health and financial health and budgeting
  • The importance of maintaining a work-life balance
