Mental Health Awareness – training course

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 on mental health awareness training 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

 

Attendees say 

“This has to be one of the best ‘virtual’ courses I have attended. The trainer was great at getting everyone to contribute and the break-out rooms meant we got to speak to most of the others in the training and provide valuable feedback. Thank you!”

“The trainer was so enthusiastic, so engaging and delivered the course very well.”

Structure, hints, and tips were useful. Discussions were open and the trainer was very friendly and engaging and made sure everyone participated.

The 1-1 coaching sessions were incredibly valuable and led to a significant increase in effectiveness at work. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul for 1-1 coaching.

Fast-paced, interesting, relevant, and practical content. Good structure of talking and breakouts, the time flew by.

Just another thank you from me for today’s session. Went down really well and people were talking about the models and continuing the discussion throughout the afternoon.

- Fiona Andrews Partner and Head of Organisation Development, Towergate Insurance

Paul has exceptional ability to take on and manage complex and sensitive programmes with an eye to the constraints of budget. The quality of advice to the business-leaders was first-rate. I would not hesitate to work with Paul and his organisation again.

- Stephen Bates MD - Managing HR Initiatives

I value working in partnership. We have built a relationship that has led to pilots, tweaks and better results. I would recommend BiteSize Learning for their delivery and understanding of client’s needs.

“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

“This is definitely the way forward for management training, as far as I am concerned.”
