NEW e-learning courses – Mental Health Awareness Series
Let’s talk about Mental Health – 5 NEW e-learning courses
The Global pandemic has put mental health and wellbeing into sharp focus. Our people are our strongest asset and looking after them is more important now than ever before.
However, although many people want to be able to support others, they do not know how.
Our new comprehensive Mental Health Awareness Suite of courses has been written by a trained psychotherapist and gives people all the information they need to understand mental health and provide support. The 5 modules can be collated into a pathway to create a ‘Mental Health for Managers’ programme which gives leaders a practical foundation in mental health.
The modules benefit from:
- Practical advice and reflective exercises
- Re-usable resources such as mindfulness animations and factsheets
- Real life case studies
- Signposting to further credible resources
We have included in the modules several practical resources that can be accessed outside of the course. These can be used at any time by those looking for mental health support or those creating a wellbeing campaign.
- Grounding Technique
- Breathing Exercise
- Guided Visualisation
- Mindfulness Exercise
- Exercise Micro Workout
The 5 modules focus on:
