Course content is tailored to the workplace setting using case-studies, videos and resources tailored to their learning needs.

Flexibly delivered to meet your needs

Designed for workplaces that require increased flexibility in the delivery of training for their staff members

A combination of online (eLearning) and a half day of follow-on face-to-face training with accredited instructors.

Skills are beneficial inside and outside the workplace

Everyone has friends or family members who experience mental health problems. Your staff can take the knowledge and skills outside the workplace and be able to support friends and family experiencing a mental health problem
