Prevent Awareness

The Prevent duty is the duty in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 on specified authorities, in the exercise of their functions, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. As Appris is defined as a specified authority, we continue to increase our knowledge on the subject.  As such, all staff, Trustees and apprentices are required to complete the online course. To access the course and, including how to sign up, visit NaCTSO.gov.uk. ACT Awareness e-Learning is a joint project between Counter Terrorism Policing and the business community.

Mental Health Awareness

In many ways, mental health is just like physical health: everybody has it and we need to take care of it. Good mental health means being generally able to think, feel and react in the ways that you need and want to live your life. But if you go through a period of poor mental health you may find you’re frequently thinking, feeling or reacting, which will become difficult to cope with. This can feel just as bad as a physical illness.

Mental health problems affect around one in four people in any given year. They range from common problems, such as depression and anxiety, to rarer problems such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Mental health difficulties affect the ability to learn, the way in which learning takes place, communication, socialising, ability to cope, friendships and relationships.

If you feel are struggling with your mental health, you can speak to your employer, or for impartial welfare support, contact Appris’ Welfare Officer, Geraldine Wilson-Foat on 07772273372 or by email at g.wilson-foat@appris.co.uk.
