Event description
Build confidence in supporting people with mental health issues!

About this Event

New Pathways' SURE for Mental Health Community Project is providing free mental health training to members of the community (particularly volunteers) to build confidence in supporting people with mental health issues.

The training is a 2 day Big Lottery funded course. This training has been developed to enable people who do not have access to Mental Health training, due to monetary restrictions, to get mental health awareness training that we believe everyone should have. The course has been developed by New Pathways, and ratified by Mental Health professionals.

The Learning Outcomes of the course are as follows:

By the end of the training the learner will be able to:

Describe good Mental Health

Recognise common Mental Health issues (such as Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia)

Use skills to support people with Mental Health issues

Describe some self-help techniques for Mental Health issues and know how to refer to additional support

Will have an understanding of the skills needed to respond to someone who is suicidal and potentially preserve life

This training runs from 9.30am-4.30pm both days, and attendance at both days is required.

This training is open to, and suitable for, anyone in the community, from volunteers and community workers to people who want to help their family and friends; and is particularly useful for those with no previous mental health training.

The course is supplemented by our SURE for Mental Health mobile phone app, which has handy how-to guides.
