Vitacress builds a Mental Health First Aid team
Our Learning & Development Manager, Tanya Mew, has recently become a fully trained Mental Health First Aider working towards building the Vitacress Mental Health team.
“I’m so proud to be part of building the Mental Health team,” said Tanya. “Vitacress recognises that good mental health at work is as important as good physical health and we want to provide support to all of our colleagues who feel they may need it.”
Working alongside Oakley Training and Consultancy and Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England, over 23 colleagues have been trained either as a Mental Health First Aider, Champion or in mental health awareness. Training will continue until we have a full team which covers all shifts, making sure help and support is fully accessible to every colleague in the business.
Only by becoming aware of our own and others mental health can we support and improve our wellbeing at work and at home.
