Why Choose Mental Health First Aid® India?

Mental health costs Indian businesses 14 million USD annually. Leaders are recognising the negative impact of poor mental health on their business and society at large.  As a leader, you care for your business and for the people you work with, therefore making mental health part of your personal and business agenda becomes paramount.

Providing your team with access to quality care is not enough to mitigate the impact of poor mental health. Beliefs, social exposure and stigma, lack of knowledge on mental health, and help negation are some of the invisible barriers that keep your staff members from reaching out for help or talking about mental health.

Quality education on mental health is a powerful tool to equip your team members with the right set of knowledge and build positive attitudes and helpful behavior towards mental health and illnesses. Mental Health Literacy - a term coined by Professor Anthony Francis Jorm - the founder of the MHFA™ program, is proven to be built through standardized Mental Health First Aid programs.  

What Science Suggests

“Training managers to support their workers’ mental health should be delivered to improve managers’ knowledge, attitudes and behavior for mental health and to improve workers’ help-seeking behavior.”

“Attention should be paid to ensure the quality and effectiveness of the training before delivering it to managers.”

World Health Organisation - Guidelines of Mental Health at Work, 2022

“Protect and promote mental health at work, especially through training and interventions that improve mental health literacy, strengthen skills to recognize and act on mental health conditions at work, and empower workers to seek support.”

International Labour Organisation, WHO - Mental Health at Work: Policy Brief, 2022
