Training

Mind in Greater Manchester is now able to offer high-quality training at competitive prices, in all areas of the region. As your expert mental health partner, we support people to live well in their communities and at work. Through our Mind in Greater Manchester training courses, we can enable you to develop a healthy workforce and community.

We value working in partnership. We know that bringing together different perspectives can help find solutions to complex problems.

Through our partnership of five local Minds in Greater Manchester, we are cooperating to ensure people experience better mental health and we utilise that experience to provide a unique training offer including:

Wellbeing at Work

Right now 1 in 6 workers are dealing with a mental health problem such as anxiety, depression or stress – this can stop people performing at their best. Packed full of important facts, discussion time, personal testimonies and practical exercises, our Wellbeing at Work course helps employees understand how to look after themselves and their colleagues’ mental health, and to work more confidently with customers or clients.

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid is the mental health equivalent of physical first aid. All of the content and resources used on our course are developed and accredited by Mental Health First Aid England and have followed robust quality assurance and evaluation processes. Mental Health First Aid is currently being delivered in over 23 different countries and this number is rising.

As an approved provider of Mental Health First Aid, Mind in Greater Manchester can deliver the full two-day course on-site at your organisation’s premises, or at partner venues across Greater Manchester. Mental Health First Aid Lite, a half-day introductory course, is also available.

Asist

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognise when someone may have thoughts of suicide and works with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.

Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop; anyone 16 or older can learn and use the ASIST model.

Mindfulness in Mind

Mindfulness is recommended as an effective treatment for depression and has been clinically evidenced to significantly reduce symptoms of anxiety and stress. Mindfulness is a treatment option that Mind in Greater Manchester believes should be made available to anyone who experiences mental health issues.

Mind in Greater Manchester can deliver an evidence-based, 8-week mindfulness course and also the Practitioner Training Programme, a recognised 12-month pathway for mindfulness teachers providing the foundation for seeking registration with the UK Network for Mindfulness Teachers.

All of our training opportunities can be tailored to your needs. For further details and pricing please contact Stewart Lucas.
