Training for organisations

Mental health difficulties do not discriminate and can affect anyone at any given time.

This highlights the urgent need to equip organisations, their staff, and volunteers, with the foundation skills to support people in distress and make mental health support ‘everybody’s business’.

How can we support you?

  • We can develop learning to meet your specific needs and can facilitate courses either face-to-face or via Microsoft Teams.
  • We can provide you with learning that is co-produced and co-delivered by experts by profession and experts by experience drawn from a range of backgrounds (service users, carers, nurses, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists).


Interested? Please get in touch to discuss your needs. You can e-mail us at, or call us on 0161 358 1771.
