Mental Health Awareness Training

Mental health, in general is still shrouded in misconceptions and myths. Within this half day mental health awareness course we aim to humanise and de-stigmatise mental health. We will highlight common misconceptions surrounding mental health. We will have a brief look at the most common mental health conditions, warning signs of a developing mental health issue and build confidence in talking to someone in distress. You will also learn how your own mental health can be cultivated to improve your own wellbeing.
The course centres on a journey around the Mental Health Continuum which demonstrates how our mental health is fluid and changes over time, there are no absolutes. The course structure is a medley of presentations, workshops and group discussions, at the end you will get a certificate to say that you are Mental Health Aware.
