Small businesses have been offered the chance to take up mental health training for their staff.
North Staffs Mind has been proving a comprehensive range of training courses aimed at addressing these needs within large and medium-sized businesses for almost eight years.
But the organisation, based in Stoke-on-Trent, has now created an offering for small businesses and sole traders who are unable to justify the cost of group training.
A programme of open access courses that can be attended by multiple businesses has been created, with two popular virtual training sessions taking place later this month.
It also states that the average return of investment is £5.30 for every £1 invested in mental health intervention.
Steve Channon, Income and Engagement Lead at North Staffs Mind, said: “We have realised that small businesses are missing out on mental health training for their staff due to not having enough people to justify the cost of a group session.
“Our virtual sessions can be charged for on an individual basis making it far more affordable for small businesses.”
The first two sessions are:
Mental Health Awareness - Thursday, 22 November – 9.30am until 1pm
Wellbeing and Resilience in the Workplace - Thursday, 29 November – 9.30am until 1pm
The cost is £45 per delegate.
