10-11 Carlton House Terrace to offer mental health first aid at events
10-11 Carlton House Terrace has recently achieved a new benchmark, set out by Stress Matters, that guarantees a mental health first aider at every event.
All members of the London venue’s in-house events team have been trained in mental health first aid.
The #MHFAEveryEvent campaign launched by Stress Matters aims to "promote the importance of having a mental health first aider present at every event", and to have it seen as "the equivalent to needing a physical first aider on-site".
The 10-11 Carlton House Terrace events team are now certified to recognise and support those who might be living with mental ill health through Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England’s action plan.
Founder of Stress Matters, Laura Capell-Abra, said: “We are so pleased to see the team at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace achieve the #MHFAEveryEvent benchmark. We know they have always been hugely passionate about people and put their health and wellbeing first. We hope the team are an inspiration to others to follow suit and ensure we all work together to create a safe industry.”
Catherine Owen, head of venues sales and marketing at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, added: “Making our venue as accessible as possible has always been a priority and becoming fully-qualified mental health first aiders was a natural next step. Going forward, there will always be a mental health first aid trained team member at every event on-site. We’re proud to be able to care for our guests, clients, staff and suppliers in many different capacities and mental health is of paramount importance as we prepare for events to re-open soon.”
