The management team at Lakeside Village Outlet Shopping, in Doncaster, have taken part in a Mental Health First Aid training course organised by Business Doncaster’s Advance team, at Doncaster Council.
The team, whose chosen charity for the year is Doncaster MIND, were keen to learn more about the difficulties that people may face and how they can help.
Di Mellis, centre manager at Lakeside Village said: “This was a fantastic course and I can’t recommend it enough.
“It covered different types of mental ill health, what some of the causes can be, how people live with their conditions, and importantly it highlighted how to have open conversations with anyone that you think may be having mental health issues and how to signpost them to get the help they need.
“The trainer was an amazing lady who spoke very candidly about her own experiences and how she had ended up being a life coach for people who have attempted suicide.
“My biggest take away was how to deal with and recognise your own issues but also how to have a proper open conversation. I feel very confident now that we could help signpost people to the help they may need.”
