Module : Mental health awareness

Course Overview

Most of us take our mental health for granted, assuming mental ill health is something that happens to others. However, no one is immune. 1 in 4 of us will be diagnosed with a mental illness and considerably more of us will experience undiagnosed symptoms.  We are happy to discuss physical illness, but shy away from any discussion of mental illness. This course is designed to debunk the myths and explore the facts about mental health.

Participants will be able to

  • Recognise the importance of positive mental health for the individual and the wider community
  • Understand personal and work causes and triggers of mental ill health
  • Develop an understanding of their own mental health
  • Spot the early warning signs of imbalance
  • Understand and recognise the signs and symptoms of some common mental health illnesses
  • Develop the confidence to assist someone with mental ill health
  • Explore how best to support their personal mental wellbeing
  • Discuss how to promote mental health at work





  • Usually three hours
  • Interactive - group activities and discussion
  • Typically 10 - 12 participants

“I wanted to say a big thank you for the training you ran for us last Friday. The feedback has been universally positive, and it was certainly one of the best training sessions I’ve ever attended.. I think it gave many people some tools to be much more confident in interacting, which was exactly the aim!”

- Hannah Purves Claims Director, Markel International

“The short focussed presentation of the critical information, supported by electronic class notes, was excellent as it allowed maximal learning in a short, but intense, session. This is definitely the way forward for management training, as far as I am concerned.”
