B MINDFUL/CSL are working together to offer 100 places on the (MHFA England) Course

Mon, March 01, 2021

In February B Mindful have been working hard to deliver 35 Mental Health First Aid England qualifications to one of CSL’s strategic partner’s the Royal Life Saving Society UK. The programme has seen over 35 RLSS employees and volunteers gain the MHFA England certification and become an accredited Youth Mental Health First Aider. 

This course has given the individuals the confidence and skill set to approach, assess and assist with a crisis, the ability to be able to listen non judgementally and to encourage a young person to get the appropriate professional help. 

“This has been a fantastic opportunity to work with a highly recognised organisation with such a diverse workforce. We are pleased that the RLSS recognise the importance of Youth Mental Health First Aid Training. Part of our ‘community give back’ is offering our strategic partners the opportunity to upskill their workforce” 
Emily Kreyling, Founder of B MINDFUL 

“Last month 35 of our members have completed their online Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Course accredited in England. It has been delivered by one of our strategic partner organisations, Creative Sport & Leisure, under their B Mindful branding. 

Members are already commenting on the value of their learning to the work they do with young people in our clubs and branches, one said ‘it’s frightening to realise how many young people would benefit from support to improve their mental health, and I am delighted to see how I can signpost them appropriately.’ 

B Mindful will be offering more opportunities to our members over the coming months, so watch out for details coming soon”.
