Women in Wholesale funds Mental Health First Aid training

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. 

Jess Douglas of Confex is now a qualified mental health first aider.

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.”
