Free Wellbeing and Crisis Care Training

Over the last few months, we have been successfully delivering a number of free training workshops covering mental health awareness and crisis care.

These workshops are targeted to reach specific community groups, to raise awareness and understanding of mental health and crisis support. The workshops are split in two parts and take place over a two days period. One of the days will focus on mental health awareness, while the other will focus on crisis care. Attendees can choose whether they wish to attend one or both of the days. There are still places available for the workshops taking place in November and December, so don’t forget to register your free place. 

The mental health awareness (MHA) workshops will cover:

common mental health conditions

the importance of getting mental health support early
