Coastal Communities Fund, Funds Mental Health Training at Butlin’s

Butlin’s staff members undertook mental health training through Boston College which has been funded by the Coastal Communities Fund.

Following from the success of a virtual course, a face-to-face course was held on site at Butlin’s in Skegness for employees looking to become mental health first aiders. The Supervising First Aid for Mental Health courses, provided the staff members with the knowledge, understanding and skills to operate as an effective mental health first aider in the workplace.

Michelle Chase, Learning and Development Manager at Butlin’s Skegness, said, โ€œThe face-to-face course was absolutely amazing! Our team loved it so much that weโ€™re booking another one in soon. The facilitator was really engaging and made everything she talked about come to life. Attending the course has certainly benefited the health and welfare of other team members. Itโ€™s fantastic that we can promote mental health awareness throughout the resort while signposting people to other agencies should the need arise. Itโ€™s an amazing opportunity for our business.โ€
