Allianz Legal Protection is offering its solicitor partners access to free Mental Health First Aider training, an initiative aiming to bring practical support to the profession’s mental wellbeing.
The Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) specialist underwrites ATE schemes for personal injury and clinical negligence. Its latest brochure for law firms highlights the support and services it offers as it looks to build transparent and lasting partnerships.
One of these services is the free access to Mental Health First Aider (MHFA) training. The course gives law firms’ employees some understanding of the factors that may affect mental wellbeing and the confidence to step in and reassure a person in distress, be it a colleague or a client. Delivered by social enterprise MHFA England, this is the first in a series of supportive initiatives to launch in 2022.
James Barclay, head of sales and distribution at Allianz Legal Protection, said: “We’re committed to a partnership ethos and to supporting mental health. The past two years have been stressful for many of us, and the legal profession is no exception. We trust our solicitor partners will find this training helpful and we hope it makes a difference.”
