Our training is suitable for anyone working directly with individuals experiencing mental health difficulties and for organisations who may interact with customers or clients, who may present with certain conditions or challenging behaviour.

If you're working with staff in a customer facing/services environment, we can help give them the skills to effectively manage commonly occurring situations and can also look at scenarios very particular to a sector or workplace.

We run introductory courses for individuals and groups who may be interested in improving their knowledge and understanding of mental illness and also run courses that focus on specific conditions.      

 We also offer bespoke training for organisations and groups. Courses include:

  • Introduction to Mental Health
  • Workplace Wellbeing  
  • Basic Counselling Skills
  • Line Manager Training

Training can be delivered at your place of work OR in our fully equipped training suite here at the Wellbeing Centre on Sharrow Lane. We can provide a range of resources and guides, so you'll have information to refer back to after training is completed and we're developing a range of guides and tools that we hope to post on this site, to further improve people's knowledge of mental health and how they might apply this knowledge to their area of work.

To make an enquiry about bespoke training for you or your organisation, or for more information about our programme, please contact 0114 258 4489 ext 103 or email simon.franci[email protected]
