Nine executives from wholesalers and suppliers have completed their Mental Health First Aid training, thanks to Women in Wholesale, which organised and funded the course.
The online training led to a certification that is accredited by The Royal Society for Public Health and the Department of Health.
The successful candidates include: Jess Douglas, marketing & HR director at Confex; Holly Parrish, business development manager at Parfetts; Bethany Mitchell, technical assistant at Hunt’s Foodservice; Anita Oakhill, wholesale market controller at Unitas Wholesale; and Tabitha Hunter-Smale, head of business development at Sugro.
Hunter-Smale commented: “The pandemic has highlighted human fragility and I was keen to ensure that someone within our team was equipped to help in a crisis, no matter how small (or large). This course has certainly given me the confidence to do so.”
