At Engie Places and Communities, all of our Mental Health First Aiders’ have added a bold statement at the end of their signature on all emails. It reads ‘I’m a Mental Health First Aider’ in large, bright letters.
This allows staff to reach out, if or when the time comes that they need to talk. It takes away the face to face nervousness and means they just need to make a telephone call or send an email to a trained staff member, who can advise and assist.
This has already been used and our Community Engagement Officer has received a number of call where she gave confidential advice and ended with a positive outcome.
