Workplace Category Sponsor - Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England provides mental health
skills and awareness training and consultancy to a range of sectors
including universities, businesses, the armed forces, as well as
the general public.
Mental Health First Aid training is the mental health equivalent
of physical first aid. It gives people the skills and confidence to
recognise signs of common mental health issues, offer
non-judgemental first aid help and guide a person towards further
support for recovery.
MHFA England’s vision is to normalise society's attitudes and
behaviours around mental health, and their social mission is to
train one in ten of the population in order to raise mental health
literacy, break stigma and support more people to access the right
help at the right time.
Entertainment Sponsor - Laerdal Medical
In 1960, Asmund Laerdal established the need for a lifelike
manikin to train the new concept of mouth-to-mouth ventilation. He
used his soft plastics expertise, together with Dr. Bjorn Lind and
Dr Peter Safar, to develop Resusci Anne, our first product.
Today, Resusci Anne and our other products, programmes, and
services contribute to us achieving our mission of Helping Save
Lives. More than 300 million people have been trained in CPR, some
of them using Resusci Anne, and it is estimated that at least two
million lives have been saved.
Supporter - Martek Lifecare
Martek Lifecare was founded after we recognised the huge impact
that Sudden Cardiac Arrest can have on lives - defibrillators are
the only chance of survival. We are the UK distributor for
Defibtech AEDs, which has won awards and come top in independent
studies as the simplest devices available in the market.
