Last week I completed a two-day Mental Health First Aid course with Redcar & Cleveland Mind. It was excellent. It was also free! It’s usually £300 (or £360 if the agency delivering it is VAT registered). But I digress. I think that most workplaces have a physical First Aider. But how many have a Mental Health First Aider? A growing number do but I think there are still many that don’t. This got me thinking about those of us who work alone, including home working. How can/do we check on our own physical and mental wellbeing?
