Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) continues to forge ahead with its aim of transforming the mental health services available to its 1,200 members of staff.
A number of directors and managers have recently completed the Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course, which will enable them to deliver specialised mental health first-aider courses throughout the Group. They are:
- Terry Wilcock, Director of Health, Safety and Environment
- Paul Campbell, Group VQ Assessor
- Kevin Walton, Managing Director of PTSG’s London-based cradles division
- Matt Bluh, Operations Director of PTSG’s London-based cradles division
As is the case with physical first aid, the concept is to help people to spot the early warning signs associated with mental ill health and guide them towards the appropriate help.
PTSG, in creating mentally literate workplaces, intends to take the first step to a compassionate culture in which people can thrive, rather than being held back by mental health issues. The Group’s approach to mental health was featured in the April edition of PFM magazine.
