Andy provides Mental Health First Aid training. He sparks conversations, which enables culture change within organisations. He creates safety and trust by sharing his own vulnerability and gives a unique ‘behind the scenes’ insight into life and death situations on SAR helicopters, the Afghanistan battlefield and the potential downward spirals of 21st Century pressures. His approach is different, refreshing and unique, which is reflected in his campaigns, such as #MenDoLunchDay (14 Nov).
Wellbeing is good for business. Healthy people are happier, more engaged and more productive.
Practical mental health skills and awareness training are key components for creating a safe, healthy workplace where the mental health and physical health of employees are valued equally.
