Media and Entertainment

The Media and Entertainment industry can greatly benefit from physical and mental health first aid training provided by Madeleys First Aid Plus. Here are the reasons why:

  1. High-Pressure Environments: Professionals in the media and entertainment industry often work in high-pressure environments with demanding deadlines, intense schedules, and performance expectations. This can lead to stress, anxiety, and mental health challenges. Mental health first aid training equips individuals with the skills to recognize signs of distress, provide support, and promote a healthy work environment.
  2. Emotional Toll: Actors, performers, journalists, and other professionals in the industry may encounter emotionally challenging situations, traumatic events, or content that can impact their mental wellbeing. Mental health first aid training helps individuals cope with the emotional demands of their work, manage stress, and seek appropriate support when needed.
  3. Irregular Work Hours: The media and entertainment industry often involves irregular and long work hours, night shifts, and intense periods of production. These factors can disrupt sleep patterns, contribute to fatigue, and affect overall physical and mental health. Physical first aid training educates individuals on managing fatigue, maintaining healthy sleep habits, and preventing workplace injuries.
  4. Performance Anxiety and Self-Care: Performers, artists, and media professionals may face performance anxiety, self-doubt, and the pressure to meet audience or industry expectations. Mental health first aid training addresses these concerns, providing strategies to manage performance-related stress and promote self-care practices.
  5. Workplace Safety: Although the media and entertainment industry may not have physical hazards comparable to other industries, it is not immune to workplace accidents or emergencies. Physical first aid training equips individuals with the skills to respond to injuries, provide initial care, and facilitate the appropriate medical support until professional help arrives.
  6. Unique Challenges: Media and entertainment professionals often work on creative projects that require collaboration, effective communication, and teamwork. Mental health first aid training enhances interpersonal skills, promotes healthy communication, and fosters a supportive and inclusive work environment.
  7. Managing Public Image: Individuals in the media and entertainment industry often face scrutiny from the public, media, or online platforms. This can lead to mental health issues, cyberbullying, or negative impacts on self-esteem. Mental health first aid training helps individuals navigate these challenges, build resilience, and maintain a positive self-image.

By providing physical and mental health first aid training, Madeleys First Aid Plus equips individuals in the media and entertainment industry with the tools and knowledge to take care of their physical and mental wellbeing. This leads to a healthier and more resilient workforce, improved creativity, and the ability to navigate the unique challenges of the industry while promoting a culture of overall wellness.

Our Courses

Voices of Trust and Success

I can’t believe how much I learned about mental health in just one day. The course is really interesting and very informative - Lou teaches in a way that enables plenty of interaction and discussion between the learners, breaking down any stigma people may have about talking about mental health issues. I now think very differently about how a person may be thinking or feeling, and I am mindful of their words and actions and how it could be a warning sign or a cry for help. Being a mental health first aider means I could make a difference to someone who is struggling. That is a massive and personal thing to me.

First Aid for Mental Health

Audrey Whyle, ArtShack

I have been singing her praises and we're already booked in for our First Aid at work and safeguarding training.

Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable People

Fearless Female Education Ltd

An excellent course that was informative and well taught. Louise did a brilliant job of explaining all areas of First Aid-what we needed to do and why which massively helped the learning experience and my ability to retain life saving information. I would highly recommend this course.

Emergency First Aid at Work

Katie Iles, The SeaChange Trust

From the start to finish Louise was informative, practical and interesting. With her extensive background and experience within the medical industry including A an E, she was able to pitch real scenarios at us regardless of the nature of our business or employment which made the whole day much more relevant. Very Highly recommended to anyone either refreshing or starting First Aid for the first time and I wouldn't hesitate to offer her and Madeleys First Aid Plus services to anyone who needs First Aid qualifications.

First Aid at Work

Phil Rowley, Rowley Racing

Louise came highly recommended for Mental Health First Aid training and after a chat with her, I quickly realised she was definitely the right fit for me and my team. Louise was efficient, patient (7 rather chatty women), friendly and tremendously knowledgable which made the course one of the best training sessions I have ever been on. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day and nearly three weeks later, we are still talking about the training and more importantly, putting it into practice. I feel fortunate to have found someone who understood our needs and could deliver so effectively to such a diverse team. Keeping everyone's interest and getting all of us engaged is no meant feat and Lou made it look easy.

First Aid for Mental Health

Fearless Female Education Ltd

I am more confident to help if ever needed, who knew there was a “best side” for the recovery position! Very good information regarding the use of the defib machine, I’d be confident to use it if ever needed!
