Mental Health First Aider

Congratulations Craig Portman!!!

After recently attending a Mental Health First Aid Course, Craig Portman is now an Accredited Mental Health First Aid Instructor.

The role of a Mental Health First Aider in the workplace is to be a point of contact for an employee who is experiencing a mental health issue or emotional distress. This interaction could range from having an initial conversation through to supporting the employee to get appropriate help.

As well as in a crisis, Mental Health First Aiders are valuable in providing early intervention help for someone who may be developing a mental health issue. Initial support is offered through non-judgemental listening and guidance.

Craig has worked for John Tainton for over 29 years, working in various areas within the company. Craig started off in the Warehouse and moved to new roles in Despatch, Transport Controller and Works Supervisor culminating as one of the works Shift Managers.

Craig is a great character and a valued member of staff.
