Senior and line management training
Providers can use Care Coins to access mental health first aid training and support to their management team, to enable them to analyse and reflect upon their own stress management skills, and confidently assess and support their staff regarding mental health issues, and the associated lifestyle and coping strategies complications.

Staff Training
Social Care staff in Cornwall can access sessions on awareness for staff to encourage self-assessment, with prevention identified as the preferred outcome rather than the cure; as well as clear guidance regarding Red Umbrella’s discreet person centred support framework for staff.

Mental health first aid training in the workplace
All employers are required legally to provide a recognised first aider in the workplace for physical health. We believe mental ill-health and wellbeing is just as important, which is why we are offering access to an internationally recognised MHFA course, for designated employees. The course is accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health/Public Health England.

By the end of the training, your designated member of staff will be able to say they are an accredited mental health first aider.

  • Recognise the symptoms of mental health issues
  • Provide initial help
  • Guide a person towards appropriate treatment

Combined with the experience and services provided by Red Umbrella, your valued employees will be covered from identification to assessment, diagnosis, appropriate treatment, and aftercare.
