CPL Online have just launched their New Mental Health Support Champion e-learning course which provides an understanding of the importance of mental health and the value of promoting a supportive environment at all levels.
Working in association with The Mind Map who work to navigate people to better mental health through journalism, therapy, signposting and Mental Health First Aid training, the course also includes recognising the symptoms of mental ill-health, delivering correct support and guidance towards professional help and developing an awareness of personal wellbeing.
The launch of this course comes after CPL Online conducted their own research into mental health within the Hospitality Industry. The results stated that 83% of respondents indicated they believed their company would benefit from mental health awareness training and 1 in 3 respondents would like to see more training at work to help individuals maintain positive mental health, including supporting those with mental health difficulties and knowing where to go for help themselves.
Martin Hilton, Director of Learning and Education at CPL Online, said:
“Fostering a better understanding of mental health and wellbeing will see businesses
developing stronger relationships with their teams and by considering these matters at a
personal level, business leaders can empathise with those team members who may be
experiencing mental ill-health and encourage them to seek the necessary support.
It is vital to train members of the team so they are able to spot the tell-tale signs which, if
acted upon, can help themselves and others. Ultimately this will improve retention levels,
morale and productivity by showcasing that we can all talk about mental health in a safe
environment, free of prior preconceptions.”
