PLEASE NOTE: This training is only available to people living in Kent and Medway, in the United Kingdom. Unfortunately our organisation are unable to facilitate requests outside of these areas.

Mid Kent Mind’s MHA training is broken into three distinctive tiers of training.

Tier One training provides you with a two-hour Mental Health Awareness session which looks at the following:

  • Basic Facts and Awareness
  • Latest figures on mild to moderate MH
  • Stress – Bottle and Bucket
  • Anxiety – Types, Causes and Signs
  • Depression – Types, Causes and Signs
  • What Helps – Six ways to wellbeing

Tier Two training goes into more intermediate levels of detail – exploring some of the more prevalent mental health problems which people may encounter, and exploring them in more detail. This training session lasts for three hours, and includes the following:

  • Basic facts and Awareness
  • Stress Bucket reminder and link to “Stress Signature of Acute Stress disorder”
  • Brief reminder of anxiety and depression
  • Self-Harm – Misconceptions and aversion techniques
  • Eating disorders – Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating, OSFED
  • Psychosis – 3 common forms – Warning signs

Tier Three is our highest-value training package, and focusses on understanding self-harm and eating disorders before exploring these sensitive topics in more detail. We offer two different types of Tier Three training – Eating Disorder Training, and Personality Disorder Training.

Eating Disorder Training

This is a three hour training session which includes the following:

Self-Harm – Facts and awareness

  • Recognise signs and understand the causes
  • Introduce the self-harm cycle
  • Myth busting and harm minimisation/delay techniques

Eating disorders – Facts and awareness

  • Recognise signs of Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating, OSFED
  • Understanding Body Dysmorphia and Muscle Dysmorphia (Bigorexia)
  • Understand cause and maintenance factors
  • Introduce the link between Autism and Anorexia Nervosa

Personality Disorder Training

This training is being written by our team right now. This page will be updated to reflect additional details when we have them.

We recommend you undertake Tier One training before undertaking Tier Two training, as the content covered in Tier One is only briefly touched on in Tier Two training.

Similarly, you may wish to undertake Tier Two training before transitioning into our Tier Three training.

We would  like to remind you that the topics undertaken as a part of this training can be sensitive for many. Please feel free to e-mail our team ahead of time if you are worried that the training we offer may be too distressing for you to undertake. It is important to us that the people accessing our training feel comfortable doing so.
