About our training

From Social Workers to Police Officers, Receptionists and Carers, all front line mental health staff should be confident in spotting the signs of mental health issues and be able to act accordingly and appropriately. In order to ensure that you and your colleagues feel able to assess and subsequently work with those with mental health problems, we have singled out a few training courses that will be of great benefit to staff.

We cover the basics from Mental Health and Dementia Awareness, to Mental Health First Aid and type specifics such as Understanding and Working with Attachment Disorders and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Awareness. We also specialise in delivering the more intensive mental health training courses such as Ligature Training and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy for those who require a more interactive experience.
