At OSi we realise the importance of not only effective mental health workplace strategies but also the benefits that well planned effective approaches can bring to charities and peer support groups.

That is why for the last few months the dedicated team at MISS the Miscarriage Information Support Service have undergone level 1 and 2 training in Mental Health First Aid.

It’s been a pleasure to help this team develop skills they can apply in their roles

We are pleased to open our blog to Abi from MISS to explain a little about what they do.
“My name is Abi Clarke and I am Chairperson/Founder of the charity, MISS (Miscarriage Information Support Service).
MISS is a support service for women and men who have suffered a miscarriage,
As well as Director for events management and wedding planning business, AC Weddings & Events.
MISS has two monthly support groups, a 24/7 phone service and active social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and instagram.
We have also recently started support for “Next Pregnancies”.
I approached Brett Townsley, Director from Omniscent Safety Innovations as we were keen to study and learn about Mental Health First Aid.
Brett was also highly recommended by local businesses and colleagues.
We were particularly interested to do this for our members, telephone service and support groups.
I am delighted to say that myself, Anna Rist and Claire Taylor have passed the Level 1 and 2 training.
MISS highly recommends Omniscient Safety Innovations ltd,
This training – plenty of case studies and life experiences as well as explaining how it relates to MISS. We enjoyed the role play and learned on areas we need to improve”
