October 10th is World Mental Health Day – this day is all about raising awareness and creating an understanding around mental well-being. This year, we have even more reason to celebrate as 14 members of Team CT are now qualified Mental Health First Aiders!
Introducing CT’s Mental Health First Aiders
Thanks to Live and Learn Training Consultancy, we now have a team of 12 dedicated Mental Health First Aiders right here at CT. These individuals have undergone comprehensive training to recognise signs of mental distress, offer initial support, and connect individuals with appropriate resources. They are the first line of defence to those struggling with their mental health, providing a listening ear, empathy, and guidance when needed the most.
Mental Health Matters
Mental health awareness has come a long way in recent years. We’re breaking down the stigma surrounding it and have begun to understand that mental health is as vital as physical health. Just as we know how to apply first aid when someone is physically hurt, it is equally crucial to recognise and assist individuals facing mental health challenges.
How You Can Get Involved
On this World Mental Health Day, consider how you can contribute to a progressive environment where people feel free to share how they’re feeling. Reach out to Mental Health First Aiders in your community for support, information, or guidance. Encourage open discussions about mental health with your friends and family.
Remember, it’s okay not to be okay, and seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness.
