About this event

Please note this training is for managers and deputy managers of care home staff. Please also note we can only provide training for one manager per care home. Thank you for your understanding.

We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has put extraordinary pressure on your care staff and that many are struggling with the effects of the ongoing response. As a care home manager or deputy manager, we know that you care about your staff and may have already developed some initiatives to support their wellbeing.

In partnership with mental health charity Bristol Mind, we hope to build on this with free mental health awareness training to help you further support your staff through a 2.5 hour interactive workshop.

The online workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Looking after ourselves as managers and how we encourage others to do the same in the workplace
  • Starting a sensitive conversation about mental health and well-being
  • Recognising when self or employee getting overly stressed, anxious or low in mood
  • Coping with loss
  • Wellness action plans
  • Signposting to community based services for staff and the wider community

This training is for managers and deputy managers. Please note we can only provide training for one manager per care home. If you are a manager in supported living or domiciliary care, please contact to discuss booking.

If you have any queries, or are experiencing any barriers that may prevent you from signing up, please do contact us at and we will try to help.

The West of England Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) is a NHS organisation that is running a programme of initiatives to support care homes in Bath, North East and North Somerset, Swindon, Wiltshire, Bristol, and Gloucestershire.
