Red Umbrella recently provided MHFA training for a number of team leaders and managers across our Charity. The training enabled a number of our staff to really develop their understanding of what mental health is and what factors can affect wellbeing. They have come away with some sound techniques for spotting signs of mental illness and confidence to support others in our workplace.
