This is Milk: Invest in employee wellbeing with mental health training in Glasgow

Mental health challenges affect us all, directly, or indirectly. In an effort to foster supportive communities and equip individuals with essential skills, This is Milk hosts the Scottish Mental Health First Aid Course, accredited by Public Health Scotland.

Scheduled for March 11th and 12th, at Suite 116-119, 50 Wellington Street, Glasgow, G2 6HJ, this course promises to be a transformative experience for participants. With a modest investment of £200 per person, attendees gain invaluable insights, tools, and confidence to address mental health concerns effectively.

“We believe that investing in mental health literacy is investing in the wellbeing of employees and communities,” says Angela Prentner-Smith, founder and MD of award- winning digital transformation agency, This is Milk.

“This course offers not just knowledge but tangible skills to support those in distress, whether it’s a friend, family member, or colleague.”

The Scottish Mental Health First Aid Course is designed to empower individuals from all walks of life. Participants will acquire essential skills, including effective listening techniques, initiating conversations about mental health and suicide, and understanding various mental health conditions. The course is supported by a comprehensive advice guidebook, ensuring attendees have access to vital resources beyond the classroom.

Course Highlights:

  • Guidance on being a Mental Health First Aider.
  • Understanding attitudes towards mental health issues.
  • Exploring the impact of alcohol and drugs on mental health.
  • Introduction to suicide intervention.
  • Developing effective listening skills.
  • Understanding and offering first aid for depression, anxiety, and psychosis.

Crucially, it’s important to note that the course does not aim to train individuals as mental health professionals but rather offers foundational knowledge to dismantle stigma, instil confidence, and provide initial support until professional help is accessible.

For organizations looking to prioritise mental health within their teams, This is Milk offers group booking options. With a minimum of 8 participants, group rates are available, and sessions can be arranged at the company’s location or at the training suite in Glasgow.

“We encourage everyone to join us in this mission to foster healthier, more supportive places of work and communities,”  Angela Prentner-Smith adds. “Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those struggling with mental health challenges.”
