World Suicide Prevention Day

This year 3B Training is raising awareness of World Suicide Prevention Day.

The Samaritans 2018 suicide statistics report showed that there were 6,213 suicides in the UK and Ireland in 2017. That number is staggering and needs to come down. As champions of mental health, 3B are looking to raise awareness to help reduce the rate of suicide.

The construction industry is 3B’s biggest customer audience, therefore, we feel it’s our duty to help.

What we are doing to help…

Mental Health First Aid Training

In January 2019, 3B Training’s line managers all attended MHFA England’s Mental Health First Aid training. Having a widespread group of mental health first aiders provides support to all the teams in the business. There are now people in place who can recognise the signs of poor mental health, support those who come forward with a problem and point them in the right direction to get the relevant help.

3B Training have so far delivered Mental Health First Aid to 50 plus external people and have future course dates scheduled into the future.. This allows other workplaces to have vital mental health first aiders at hand. Rob Boardman, 3B’s Quality Coordinator has also become qualified as a Mental Health First Aid Trainer.  Now, 3B can keep improving how we raise awareness of mental health and ensure we are reaching as much of the industry as possible.

Mental Health Awareness in the Workplace

To help raise awareness of poor mental health and how it affects the workplace, 3B Training Director, Mathew Bewley shared his experiences with mental health on a 5-part video series created by 3B. The video series covered questions such as…

  • Why is good mental health important in the workplace?
  • Has poor mental health ever affected you?
  • What are the signs to look out for in employees who might be struggling with their mental health?
  • What can you do to help someone in the office who might be struggling with their mental health?
  • Why is mental health training important?
