About the course

Do you work in the public sector in North Central London?

Are you passionate about mental health and wellbeing?

Are you interested in supporting positive change in relation to mental health in your workplace?

Would you like to link with a Network of other Champions to share best practice in making organisations more mentally healthy across North Central London?

Our Mental Health Workplace Champions training will prepare you to:

- Be an advocate for mental health and wellbeing promotion in your workplace

- Develop an Action Plan for impacting positively on attitudes relating to mental health in your workplace

- Run short awareness raising activities in your workplace related to mental health

- Be familiar with local and national signposting resources in order to guide colleagues and others to timely and effective support when necessary

- Gain a better understanding of how to look after your own mental health and wellbeing

- More effectively support colleagues with their mental health in a safe and boundaried manner (please note: you will not be expected to perform complex interventions with colleagues experiencing mental ill health, or in crisis)

- Utilise the Rethink Mental Illness Mental Health in the Workplace Employers’ Toolkit to move your organisation closer to fulfilling the requirements in the Mental Health section of the London Healthy Workplace Charter

- Link with a network of other Champions to share learning and ideas, and problem solve how to overcome any issues you might encounter

Because we are mindful that people who will be interested in becoming Champions will have differing levels of pre-existing knowledge, skills and experience in relation to mental health, we will be running two levels of training to ensure that you are trained in a group with a similar level of understanding and experience to yourself. Please NOTE, this is the registration page for the Introductory Level training, but we are inviting Advanced Level learners to join us for the AFTERNOON ONLY (1pm-5.30pm).

If you are not sure if you are an Advanced Level or Introductory Level learner, please note the below:

Introductory Level

Ideal for: anyone who has not had any previous training in mental health or would like to support others around their mental health but doesn't currently feel confident to do so.

Advanced Level

Ideal for: anyone who regularly find themselves supporting people in psychological distress, and who also wishes to have a positive impact on the culture in their workplace related to mental health.

If you are still unsure as to which course is best suited for you, please email us at training@rethink.org
