Mental Health Training

Aside from the human cost of mental illness, the financial cost to employers in the UK are estimated to be between £33 and £42 billion per year. Low productivity, lengthy or frequent sickness absence due to mental health problems can impact significantly on organisational and team outcomes.

  • Do you or your team want to be able to recognise the signs and symptoms of mental health problems?
  • Learn how to manage and support people who are experiencing mental health problems within the workplace and gain the confidence to manage and plan a successful return to work?
  • Develop the knowledge to promote resilience and a mentally healthy workplace?

Carolyn delivers mental health training for organisations, charities and groups in the South West, often with long-term colleague Colin Nash.

Carolyn and Colin have almost 50 years of experience between them in mental health services, many of them at senior levels in the NHS, Local Authorities and a national mental health charity. Their menu of training courses and workshops includes:

  • Mental Health in the Workplace;
  • Mental Health Awareness;
  • Building Resilience;
  • Managing Stress and Burnout;
  • Managing Risk, Self-harm and Suicide Prevention.

This is not off the shelf ‘one size fits all’ training. Carolyn and Colin adapt their courses to deliver the outcomes you need. They also have the depth of knowledge and experience to be able to take the training in different directions on the day in line with the individual learning needs of delegates.

Bespoke training and post-training consultancy can also be provided.

Wellbeing Workshops

Improve wellbeing, productivity, sustainability and culture within your workplace in one to three hours with an Increasing Resilience Workshop.

Learn about the impact of stress, how to identify stress including ‘hidden stress’, burnout and anxiety, and importantly what works to reduce stress and build resilience. Practical techniques that can be used immediately will be practised during the workshop.

The workshop can be delivered according to your business needs; a short workshop can be delivered over lunchtime or choose a three hour bespoke workshop based on the needs of your organisation. For a unique experience, there is the option of including a gentle yoga session within workshops providing additional experiential knowledge of how use of the breath, movement and relaxation practices can reduce feelings of stress.

One hour workshops start at £195; three hour bespoke workshops start at £395. Reduced rates can be discussed for charities and small community organisations.
