Our selection of Mental Health training courses cover a wide range of issues surrounding this often complex topic.

A greater understanding of the impact of mental health can both benefit and safeguard an organisations clients, customers and workforce regardless of industry.

But for those working at the frontline of mental health it is not only about a knowledge of a condition or disorder, it can be dealing with worst case scenarios and how to stay protected and protect others should the need arise.

For those new to the subject area we provide courses offering an overview on the spectrum of conditions and disorders that have an impact on mental health but if you want to delve a little (or a lot) deeper we also cover more specific and some very specialised subjects including Mental Health First Aid, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Ligature training and Lone Working & Personal Safety.
