Stigma and a lack of awareness play a huge part in mental health’s role in society today. We all understand that mental health is real and affects those around us, but we may not truly understand what someone is going through. This course gives you a deeper understanding of mental health and helps to break down the barriers that may be present in the workplace.
Learn – Stress & Resilience
This course will help you to understand what stress is, how it affects us all, and the health risks of short- and long-term stress. The course will also help you to identify your personal triggers, and how you can learn to cope with them in healthy ways, reducing your overall stress.
Listen – Mental Health Support
This course will help you to develop a network of people who you can rely on (and who can rely on you) when it comes to supporting one another with mental health in general. You’ll learn key skills like non-judgemental listening and what to do in a crisis.
The Wellbeing Course
The Wellbeing Course is designed to give you the knowledge and tools to successfully manage your wellbeing through times of change and uncertainty. This course is designed to assist you on your wellbeing journey. This enjoyable, interactive session gives you the opportunity to reflect on your physical, social and mental health and make any necessary changes to enhance your wellbeing.
Introduction to Mindfulness
In this time of uncertainty and fear, how to deal with the changes that are happening to our everyday lives is vitally important to our mental wellbeing. Mindfulness allows us to do just that.
These mindfulness sessions are specifically tailored to provide you with mindfulness techniques that will help you to deal with anxiety, worry and any overwhelming emotions, whilst also helping to reduce feelings of isolation.
