Free Mental Wellness & Crisis Care Training

Mind in Harrow is hosting a FREE training event in partnership with Public Health (Harrow Council) and Harrow Carers.

The training will run for one week from Monday 13th to Friday 17th March, giving you the choice of which day to attend. Registration will start each day at 9.30am with training running from 10am to 4.30pm.

The morning's training will cover general mental health awareness, stress management and common mental health conditions, while the afternoon's training will provide a comprehensive overview of where to go for support around mental health in Harrow and what to do in a crisis. It will also offer insight into supporting people who have found it challenging to access services due to caring responsibilities, and cultural barriers.

This training is aimed at professionals and volunteers who are in non-mental health roles, both within primary care and the voluntary sectors, as well as anyone supporting people from BMER communities. It will take place at Harrow College, Lowlands Road, Harrow, HA1 3AQ.

If you would like to attend, please book your free ticket via Eventbrite as soon as possible. For further information please contact Nathifa Douet on 020 8515 7861 or email n.douet@mindinharrow.org.uk.
