Mental health training
(If you are looking for details of our publicly funded training programme in Camden and Islington please click here)
Mental health training is one of our key ways of changing the experience of people affected by poor mental health in this country. We deliver this for a wide variety of different audiences, through local services, partnerships and contracts managed and delivered by our External Training team.
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.
The standard courses we offer include:
Mental Health First Aid [delivered by certified MHFA England trainers] (2 days)
Mental Health Awareness (1 day or half day)
Mental Health in the Workplace for Managers (1 day or half day)
Mindfulness, Wellbeing and Resilience (1 day or half day)
Youth Mental Health First Aid [delivered by certified MHFA England trainers] (2 days)
Mental Health Awareness e-learning (45 - 60 mins)
Our trainers and ‘experts by experience’ work together to develop and deliver our high-quality training. This approach brings together both theoretical and real life experiences to produce a comprehensive training package. Our participants have said that this style of training offered them a unique perspective into understanding mental health and living with mental health problems.
Lesley Everett, Director of Operations at ITN, has led a mental health awareness initiative at ITN and took part in our Mental Health First Aid training recently. She says:
“The training delivered by Rethink Mental Illness has provided us with a greater awareness and understanding of different mental health conditions, alongside simple and practical tips. Taking part has made us all much more confident to support someone who may be experiencing an issue with their mental health. I now feel that I know much more about what to say and do in an informal chat or in an emergency, and would be able to reassure someone that help is at hand.”
Over the past two years, we have delivered Mental Health First Aid and Mental Health Awareness to over 3,500 people.
Alongside ITN, our clients have included HM Treasury, The Department of Health, AIG, Asda, Arsenal in the Community, Barclays, AT Kearney, Pizza Hut, Aviva, Sport England, University College London, Birkbeck University, Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, Police Forces, the Pensions Regulator, Action Aid, Shelter, and Macmillan... among many others!
Our courses are supported by resource packs so that participants can reinforce their learning with additional skills and tools
Our training team can also work with you to design and deliver bespoke training which meets the specific requirements of your organisation.
