Aico and EIC collaborate to deliver mental health awareness webinars

Aico and the Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) are joining forces to help educate and increase understanding of mental health awareness with virtual, online training.

Aico-EICMentalHealth-20As part of its ongoing commitment and support to the EIC, Aico is organising mental health awareness sessions online via webinar. These sessions will be delivered alongside the company’s Expert Installer Training scheme to provide interactive and informative training.

Building on the momentum generated from its April CPD-accredited sessions, the delivery of online mental health awareness sessions will be run in partnership with the EIC. These sessions will be run by a qualified EIC trainer and aim to provide an understanding of what mental health is, knowledge on some common mental health issues and encourage challenging of the stigmas associated with mental health. This initiative will help educate in ways to look after your own mental health and to support someone who may be in distress.

These sessions began in West Lothian College with the webinars being delivered to apprentices and Electrical Engineering students following their Expert Installer training. The webinars were limited to six students to allow for better interaction and engagement with the EIC provider and had a positive response from the students. College Principle Jackie Galbraith said: “These sessions provided an excellent resource for students to ask questions and talk to their peers.”

The free of charge mental health awareness sessions offered by Aico and the EIC will be rolled out nationwide to those within the electrical industry in the coming months.

The EIC is an industry charity that, for over 100 years, has recognised the importance of providing the right support and meeting the wellbeing needs of individuals to create better workplaces and industry communities. Aico says it is proud to be supporting the work of the EIC and has supported the charity for a number of years through charity events.

For information on the mental health awareness sessions and to sign up, you can contact your local Regional Specification Manager.
