Mental Health Training

Mental Health is just as important as your physical health: everybody can see a broken leg, but not everyone can see when someone is struggling with their mental health.
If a staff member or team or even yourself go through a period of poor mental health they or you might find everyday tasks becoming more difficult, or even impossible, to cope with. This can feel just as bad as a physical illness, or even worse.
The current corona virus (COVID-19) outbreak, has been a scary and emotional time for everyone and understandably can affect our mental health. Mental health problems affect around one in four people in any given year; since the COVID-19 outbreak there has been a significant rise in young adults & adults suffering from mental health.

We offer two training courses for mental health in which the aims and objectives are to raise awareness and how to give First Aid with support to any employee that may suffer from mental health or mental illness.
The two training courses for mental health training are:
Both courses are taught by Corrine Marklew who is a qualified PMV&A (Prevention Management of Violence and Aggression) Instructor that works in a Specialist Learning Disability Assessment and Treatment Unit for mental health. She is also a Mental Health staff nurse with 22 years of experience who specialises in Dual Diagnosis of mental health and Individuals with learning Disabilities.
