Training Packages

We offer multiple courses, making sure that HR have their designated Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA), as well as an informed workforce with regards to gambling, mental health, addiction and drug/drink use at work. We are here to help.

Through her 30 years of experience within the industry, Red Umbrella’s Head of Education and Learning has developed unique training days for Senior Managers, Line Managers and Staff.

The training days are aimed around Mental Health education and good practice, enabling open conversations to occur naturally and changing workplace cultures.

Our training days can be done in half and full day slots and take place within your work environment.

We also offer bespoke training days around your companies specific needs.

There is no need to have to deal with multiple people or invoices, just us working together with your HR under one umbrella.


Any training we offer is all on-site in your environment, and flexible to your working patterns.

Including our MHFA Training.

Just like a normal First Aider, the Mental Health First Aider isn't there to solve the problem, they're there to put on the plaster until the correct person can help. Without our cover this would be a generic GP or a therapist.

Where we are unique, is that our cover provides that next step after identification. We would send out one of our hand picked Team members to go and assess, usually outside the work place for anonymity, so they get the correct diagnosis and treatment plan, and we provide face to face as well as skype and telephone calls throughout the process, with fully trained personal relevant to what the employee might be suffering from.

We are different to the rest...

Everybody who takes part in a Red Umbrella Training Day will be eligible for a years free access to our online forums. Here employees can talk anonymously to peers, from all sectors we work in, about their affliction or addiction.

We understand Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA) need additional, on going support. Each MHFA we train can access our MHFA specific forum and is eligible to call our 24/7 support where they can seek counsel from our qualified personal.
