Mental health training is one of our key ways of changing the experience of people affected by poor mental health in this country. We aim to enable people to feel more comfortable and confident to talk about mental health and know more about how to respond when problems arise.

Our training courses are designed to improve the lives of people affected by mental illness. We do this by drawing upon the understanding and expertise gained from supporting people living with mental illness, for over 40 years, and utilising a range of techniques to appeal to different learning styles.

After attending one of our training sessions you will leave with an increased understanding of mental health and mental illness, and a range of skills and tools you can use, both in the workplace and in everyday life.

Our training & Covid-19

We believe that in these new and challenging times it is more important than ever that we talk about our mental health and wellbeing.  For many of us, our ways of working have suddenly changed, and we are facing new pressures. This makes it particularly unfortunate that due to the social distancing guidance and efforts to keep everyone safe, we are currently unable to deliver our face-to-face training as we usually do. However, we are pleased to announce that we have now converted our training courses for remote delivery.

Our online sessions are facilitated by one of our expert trainers, who bring the content to life with engaging and interactive online elements. All you need is a computer, internet access, audio and camera enabled and a quiet room.
