Finch consultant accredited to deliver i-act employee wellbeing training
We are delighted to announce that Finch consultant Matt Longley is now an approved and accredited instructor for i-act training.
This means he is now qualified to go into companies who wish to embrace employee well-being and train managers and frontline workers how to promote positive mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
i-act aims to reduce the stigma around mental health and wellbeing issues and promote more positive messages. It is industry renown as the UK’s leading evidence-based mental health awareness programme for managers and employees.
The accredited i-act course for managers aims to improve workplace wellbeing and help managers to support employees who may experience a mental health or wellbeing issue.
The training offers a basic first-response approach along with a proactive focus upon improving wellbeing to help build resilience.
Having completed the i-act training, the intention is that practitioners and managers are better able to identify signs of distress and signpost individuals to where they can find help and support. It is not their role to diagnose or ‘treat’ someone’s mental health or wellbeing issues.
The training also gives managers a greater understanding of mental health and wellbeing issues and help them recognise when colleagues may need further help and support.
Having completed the training, managers and front line staff will have practical tools for promoting positive wellbeing in the workplace to help build resilience for themselves as managers and for colleagues. They will be able to offer guidance and advice on how to connect with colleagues who may be experiencing a mental health or wellbeing issue.
Finch Consulting can deliver the course in-house to a group of managers, or it can be arranged to take place at Finch’s purpose built training centre in Ashby de la Zouch.
