Suicide is the leading cause of death in men under 49 and women under 35. With a rise in mental ill-health, there is an ever increasing need for all individuals to understand how to spot signs of distress, effectively respond, and support a person in need. Thoughts of suicide are said to affect around 5% of the population at any given time – thats around 1 in 20 individuals.
Mental Health Learning was founded in 2018 as a consultancy and training provider to support places of education and workplaces to do just this.
Our mission is to ensure that skills continue to grow amongst those who are most likely to see the signs of mental ill-health, self-harm, and thoughts of suicide. Our motivation is that our trainees can recognise these signs, then intervene to reduce harm in your place of education or workplace.
We exist not to tick a box, but to make a difference; to teach real-life skills. We work with you and your team to understand your needs and provide the training that is most suitable for you. If it’s not one of our regular courses, we will develop a bespoke course specifically for you. All our training is evidence based, and a number of our courses are accredited.
We work with places of education, Health care professionals, Housing Associations, the Criminal Justice System, Public services and more, as well as general members of the public.
The majority of our training is provided in-house – when we come to you, it typically makes the practicalities easier. We can also arrange training at a local venue on your behalf.
If you’d like to attend our training as an individual or would like to book a workshop for your staff team, please get in touch.
