We’ve introduced a new workshop ideal for staff who may be exposed to any occupational or operational stress or trauma – from day-to-day pressures of work; isolated or remote working; to exposure to potential trauma.
Awareness and Action in Mind (AAIM) is a one day workshop – with clients choosing either an occupational (work-related) or operational (trauma-related) focus. It is split into two sections. The first section, ‘Awareness in Mind’ gives delegates more information about common mental health disorders e.g. depression; anxiety etc; their signs and symptoms and how to spot them.
The second section: ‘Action in Mind’, is a lighter/condensed version of the Advanced Mentoring Skills workshop. It gives delegates practical tools to administer some psychological first aid, including overcoming stigma to seek help.
Georgina Godden, March on Stress Business Development Director, said: “The AAIM course was developed initially for a UK police force who wanted a structured programme for staff in a busy and supportive role to equip them with tools to both aid their colleagues but also administer self-help when the pressure is on.
“After some excellent feedback to the workshop, we soon found an occupational appetite for the content and have gone on to deliver the training to commercial organisations, including one of the UK’s largest media companies.
“It’s great to see so many organisations focusing on the important subject of employee mental health and putting into place support and training to increase staff awareness, wellbeing and resilience.”
