Dispel the stigma

1 in 4 people will experience a mental health issue of some kind each year, and 1 in 6 will experience a common mental health problem each week. If we suffer a period of poor physical health (e.g. a broken bone) most people would be quick to access medical support, so why do we not apply the same level of urgency to periods of low mental health? These courses will challenge stigma, raise awareness and educate staff about how to support each other, or those whom they care for, and improve mental well-being for all. 

This courses are designed and delivered by our mental health expert, who draws experience from a career spanning nursing, trauma recovery and supporting young peoples' mental health.
