UM as a Certified Mental Health First Aid Skilled Workplace

During these past four years, the Office for Human Resources Management & Development has been striving to develop a learning culture amongst the employees of the University of Malta by offering a wide variety of training courses in several fields.

The overall objective is to improve and develop the competence skills of the employees. As part of its training portfolio, the University has been offering training courses in Mental Health First Aid since 2016, when this course was first launched through the training expertise of the Richmond Foundation.

UM has recently been awarded the silver certification by the Richmond Foundation in recognition of the commitment to offer training in Mental Health First Aid to staff members. This forms part of the Certified Mental Health Skilled Workplace Recognition Campaign launched by the Richmond Foundation.
This certification aims to encourage all types of organisations to promote mental health awareness at the workplace. Ms Dimech Sant, the CEO of Richmond Foundation presented this certificate to Professor Carmen Sammut, the Pro-Rector for Staff & Student Welfare and Outreach on Tuesday 10 July 2018.
