Mental Health Awareness Courses


One in four people in the UK will have some sort of mental health problem in their life time.
Our Mental Health Awareness training is suitable for those who are looking to increase their awareness and understanding around mental health. Delegates will build their confidence and reduce the stigma of individual’s suffering from mental distress in the workplace and in the community. We offer three hour, half-day, full day courses or a bespoke course to suit individual requirements.
Why is understanding and addressing mental health important?

A recent Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development study highlighted the impact that mental ill health can have on organisations. The study found that:

  • 37% of sufferers are more likely to get into conflict with colleagues
  • 57% find it harder to juggle multiple tasks
  • 80% find it difficult to concentrate
  • 62% take longer to do tasks
  • 50% are potentially less patient with customers/clients.
The study also found that, for the first time, stress is the major cause of long-term absence in manual and non-manual workers.
