    Mental Health Training Course

    Mental Health and Wellbeing:
    Responding to individuals with mental health support needs
    Thursday 26th May 2022, 9.30am – 1pm
    £65 per person

    St Werburghs Community Association is running a mental health training course here at the community centre. Our staff would like to be able to respond to mental health difficulties in the community with more resilience, and, as employers, we have a duty of care to support our staff to cope with confidence with whatever situations may arise.

    We’re pleased to be able to open up the half day training course to other community organisations who feel their frontline staff could benefit. Not only will your team feel supported and better equipped to help those most in need, but they will meet and network with others working in similarly challenging roles.

    By joining us on the course you will develop the basic understanding and confidence to respond to emotional and mental health difficulties and support people in distress. You will also learn how to look after your own mental health and that of your team. 

    The half day training course will be run by Suzanne Pearson who has worked in mental health and wellbeing for over 20 years. The training will be followed by lunch provided by Neck of the Woods Cafe.
