What is 'One in Four'?
One in Four is a half-day mental health workshop, which is informal but challenging, with an emphasis on experiential learning and participation. It uses the expertise of people who have direct experience of mental ill health.
Who is it for?
Anyone who wants to find out more about mental health.
What are the training goals?
The session combines various teaching methods including discussion, simulation, quiz activities and personal accounts. Each participant receives a resource pack with further learning materials and information about sources of support with mental health issues.
The core aims of the training are:
- To raise awareness of mental health issues
- To provide an insight into the experience of living with mental illness
- To challenge stigma towards people with experience of mental ill health

Timings & Breaks
The course runs from 1.30pm to 5.00pm. It is important you arrive promptly– we promise to finish on time! A kitchen with tea and coffee facilities will be available during break times.
If you have been allocated an East Sussex County Council funded place it is our policy to charge a fee (currently £25 for One in Four) for non-attendance with less than one week’s notice. Candidate substitutions can be made at any time. This is because there are certain costs that we incur in organising the course and these are non-refundable at short notice. We have introduced this policy because if we are unable to demonstrate good attendance to our funders it will be more difficult to secure future funding for these courses.
Whole Courses & Bespoke Training
Whole Courses are a cost-effective way of training a whole team of staff or volunteers. Bespoke Training Courses can be developed and delivered by arrangement. We can design training to suit different settings; e.g. acute, residential, educational, corporate and community; different client groups and organisation with specific needs. Please contact us to discuss your exact training needs.
