Another successful day yesterday as some of our team across the Liverpool and Preston offices visited Thrive Careers Hub to attend the First Aid for Mental Health Course with John Barry from Body & Mind First Aid Training Ltd. 💙🧠


John expertly delivered an insightful rundown of how important mental health is based on detailed research alongside his own personal experience. He quoted that, "1 in 4 individuals will be affected by a mental disorder/illness in their life, whether it is themselves or a close friend or family."


He spoke of how to spot signs of mental illness (in any form), the effects and outcomes of this, how we can support an individual through non-judgemental communication and when to seek further support from professional support networks if there is a risk to the individual's life.


This will make huge steps in the support we provide for our Young People but also to each other at #TeamBedspace as we consistently strive to improve our service.


Huge thanks to John and the Thrive Team for hosting!
