​We are excited to announce our new online training package, which has evolved in line with the COVID-19 social distancing guidance.

Our training programme is aimed at providing individuals with awareness around mental health along with useful contacts to signpost others for support and advice.

The following courses are being offered as eLearning with a follow up ‘live’ session via MS Teams:-

Understanding Mental Health and Wellbeing

This workshop aims to give individuals a better understanding of how we can maintain our own mental health and wellbeing as well as reflecting upon how we can recognise distress in others.

Understanding Grief and Bereavement Workshop

This workshop aims to enhance your understanding of some of the processes involved with grief and seek to dispel some of the misunderstandings surrounding communicating with the bereaved.

Wellbeing Champion

This workshop aims to improve your understanding of how lifestyle and environmental factors can affect both our physical and mental health, in all aspects of our lives. With ongoing support and networking opportunities, we will help you to develop your knowledge of services, which support mental and physical wellbeing in Plymouth and become an enthusiastic Wellbeing Champion within your organisation.
