Mental Health has become a much-publicised topic during the pandemic.

At Hendra we have always recognised that the mental well-being of our staff is important not only to the staff but to their colleagues, family, and friends alike.

We are convinced that the investment we made in Mental Health First Aid Training in 2018 had a positive impact on the well-being of our staff prior to and during the pandemic.

The staff who took part in the 2-day training sessions in 2018 are currently completing their 1-day refresher training and eight staff members who have joined the organisation since 2018 completed their 2-day programme recently, with the remainder due to complete in July.
