Mental health training
We currently provide bespoke mental health training courses for organisations, staff, students and teachers. We deliver and tailor training courses for a range of ages, from children as young as four years old, right the way up to adults.
This involves exercises and activities to enable people to identify symptoms and challenge stigma and discrimination, and also looks at diagnosis and treatments.
We are also able to deliver bespoke sessions to meet specific needs, such as stress or emotional resilience, how to support staff with their mental health, etc. and we are able to discuss Wellbeing Action Plans and phased return to work, along with creating packs for the session full of useful tips and valuable relevant information (there is an extra cost for the packs.)
This session involves exercises and activities around identifying stress – often in the work environment – what can cause stress, and coping with stress. Also, discussions take place around whether stress is considered as a mental health problem.
A typical Resilience session would look at signs of mental illness, what is ‘mentally well’, as well as improving wellbeing, which incorporates the five ways to wellbeing.
Supporting employees back into the workplace
This session involves creating wellbeing action plans, as well as looking at reasonable adjustments, signs and symptoms, how to talk about mental health, and signposting employees to where they can go to get the support they need.
We have a flexible and interactive approach in our sessions and always receive positive feedback. We have delivered these sessions to a wide variety of corporate companies, small organisations, charities, volunteers, service users, students and schools, and are therefore able to adapt to all needs and learning levels.
Some organisations, services and schools who we have delivered training to include Fitchner Consulting Engineering Ltd, Avecto, START, Park Cloud, Equity Housing, Kingsway High School, St Thomas’ C of E Primary School, Reddish Vale High School, Ramillies Hall School, Poynton High School and Ladybarn High School.
Here are some examples of feedback we have received from the sessions:
“All areas very helpful both professionally and socially”
“Very useful and enjoyable session”
“There was a lot of the training session that I could relate to. And some of the discussion actually has given me food for thought for myself.”
“Good relevant information. Concise and well delivered.”
“Very good presentation and got a lot out of it.”
“Very good session. Great exercises and very relevant content.”
“Extremely good/informative session: well-presented and great audience interaction. An eye opener into mental health issues.”
“Very good session with both presenters being open and honest.”
“Well run and open. Good content and interaction.”
“Confidently presented, felt very professional with humour in the right areas.”
“Fantastic. Very enjoyable – good mix of interactive activities as well as information delivered.”
“Lots of info, some things that were new to me, very interesting.”
We always look to receive feedback to review how things have gone in the sessions, so we can always respond to comments and make the sessions the best they can be.
We are able to come to your venue, or suggest venues to you, and we suggest around 16 people attend the training at one time. The training costs £150 per hour.
Ideally the session would last two hours to cover the basic mental health awareness and another topic of your choosing, such as stress etc. However we can do one-hour sessions if preferred, as we know it is difficult to get people together, even just for an hour.
All the sessions are interactive and include videos, powerpoints, and exercises, as well as allowing for questions. We are also able to provide mindfulness taster sessions if requested.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch and we look forward to hearing from you.
