Mental Health Awareness Training Courses
Our courses provide managers and staff with the knowledge and confidence to work with and support colleagues and others with a mental health illness or condition. In addition advice is provided on how to tackle prejudice and stigma in the workplace.
The most common mental health conditions are reviewed and de-mystified to dispel the belief that you have to be an expert to offer support to your staff and colleagues.
