Hi! My name is Peter Annis-Brown the Managing Director of ManageHealth, and the author and presenter of this course.
I lost a staff member to suicide in 2013 and I had no idea how to deal with it or how to support other staff, family and friends. I decided to get educated so that I would know more about what signs and symptoms to look out for, and to build up my own confidence to be able to talk and support myself or someone who might be struggling.
We have put together this short and sharp Mental Fitness for U and awareness online training course to raise awareness of mental illnesses, provide you with some practical tools that improve your own wellbeing and self awareness, encourage you to talk about your mental health (or Mental Fitness) as we call it, and how you can build your own mental health literacy and confidence at home and in the workplace.
