Mental Health First Aiders: there for you

As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting health and wellbeing in the workplace, Devenish has introduced Mental Health First Aiders.

These individuals are trained to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help to people on a first aid basis.

In the same way as learning physical first aid, Mental Health First Aid teaches people how to recognise crucial warning signs of mental ill health and feel confident in guiding someone to appropriate support.

This gives employees an opportunity to speak with a fully trained and certified mental Health First Aider in confidence - to ask them for advice or just to have a chat if they are feeling stressed or down at work.

We now have 19 fully trained Mental Health First Aiders across our various sites in Belfast and are in the process of extending the initiative in our other sites across the UK.
