This is our core mental health awareness training. It provides an introduction to the topic of mental health, exploring what mental health in (and isn't) and raising awareness of both common and less common mental health issues, their symptoms and effects and how to both identify and minimise them, to enable those who work in the organisation to actively promote a culture of wellbeing for the benefit of all.
The workshop also takes learners on a historical journey, explaining how the human brain works, what creates the anxiety that can lead to mental health issues and how that it impacts the brain, body and the workplace, as well as the role of stress and happiness hormones and simple things we can do ourselves to proactively minimise the possibility mental ill-health, both on ourselves and those we live and work with.
Everyone who completes the course gets a workbook and manual which details all learning content and highlights key points to remember and actions to take so that they can refer back at any time and refresh their knowledge, enabling them to implement their new knowledge and skills immediately.
They also receive a certificate to say that they have attended the Mental Health Awareness course.
Numbers are limited to 15 people per course so that we can ensure people feel safe and supported while they learn.
