Mental Health Awareness

At least 1 in 4 people will need treatment and/or support for a mental health problem during their lifetime!  Despite this fact, people with mental health problems continue to face the effects of stigmatisation and a broader lack of knowledge and awareness.


We offer a range of engaging courses depending on your requirements:


  • Mental Health Awareness - An Introduction - (1/2-day)
  • Mental Health Awareness - Tier 1 - (1 day)
  • Mental Health Awareness - Tier 2 - (bespoke) - aimed at staff groups who have frequent contact with people with mental health needs
  • Mental Health Awareness - Tier 3 - (bespoke) - aimed at staff groups who work directly in support of people with mental health needs


Both Tiers 2 & 3 training courses can be tailored to the needs of the group concerned. For example, working with children (CAMHS, schools - mainstream and SEN) or adults with complex needs (e.g. Learning Disabilities and additional mental health needs).


We also offer a combined package of Mental Health Awareness training with a unique and innovative staff support service, TalkShare (scroll down for more information).


Courses are developed and delivered by experts in their field including those with lived experience.  The mental health trainer is Marc Ewen:

In addition to training, we are now pleased to be able to offer access to the new TalkShare service either as a stand-alone provision or packaged together with Mental Health Awareness training.
