Understanding Mental Health
Firstly, we focus on one-off conversations: Helping someone better understand mental health, mental wellbeing & mental illness.
The second session focuses on longer conversations: Supporting someone to find ways to help themselves.
Here we focus on ongoing conversations: Supporting someone to improve their mental health and resilience over time.
Some lovely words from our clients…
"Marie really tailored the content as she went around our knowledge and roles which meant that we could skip a lot of the more basic stuff and have more in-depth conversations around things we knew less about. The delivery was varied and really engaging and we explored topics I've never explored in mental health training."
“I enjoyed the mixture of educational slides and the smaller breakout rooms to discuss, the variety helped keep me engaged. I really enjoyed learning about the 5 Ways to Wellbeing, and locking in to some actions regarding what we can implement as managers to help promote wellbeing.”
