Mental Wellbeing Support at IC Training
Here at IC Training we want to try and support mental wellbeing awareness as much as possible, to ensure everyone is in good health. We believe that everyone should be educated on the subject so we can keep everyone safe and healthy. Not just mentally, but physically, as it also harms your physical health. In what ways you might ask? Well there are many side effects such as:
- High Fever
- Panic attacks
People with poor mental health may start adopting behavioural issues, such as no longer bathing and taking important care of their body. They may also have a change in appetite and stop eating as much as they used to. This can be to a point where they noticeably lose weight and could start to lead to serious health conditions. On the other hand, they could also develop an eating disorder where they may eat more as a method to try and cope with issues in their lives.
You should also be aware there are signs of mental health issues, these may be shown through people’s change of behaviour, like the way they interact with others.
An example of this is when someone who is usually very social, uncharacteristically develops antisocial habits, such as not talking or hanging out with their friends. Another sign to look out for, is someone’s distraught emotional state, or a continuous and unprovoked changing of emotions.
Where should I go if I feel I have any concerns with my mental wellbeing?
We highly recommend you sign up for therapy or a mental health expert if you have any concerns. If you are 18+ you can go and see a NHS psychological therapist, and if you are under 18 you will need to talk to your parents about it. This can help you if you need any extra assistance with your mental wellbeing, and other issues like phobias.

Where do I go if I need immediate help?
If you are in need of immediate help please call 111 and tell them what is going on. Try to be as clear as possible so they understand and can help you as quickly as possible. Remember your mental health is as serious as your physical health.
