Mid Kent Mind offer a range of Mental Health Training designed to build your confidence and increase your knowledge of the different mental health problems which people can experience. Whether you’re an individual looking to increase your knowledge on a personal level, or an employer who wants to reinforce the importance of mental health in your workplace, we have something for you. We offer a mixture of high-end certified courses, and broader awareness sessions, all underpinned by the same common goal – to tackle the stigma so often wrongly associated with mental health.
You can read more about each of the courses we offer below.
Two-Day Mental Health First Aid Courses
A two-day Mental Health First Aid course is a fantastic way to not only build your knowledge of mental health, but to also build a strong toolkit of different resources and techniques which you can use to support others.
MHFA is a leading qualification for mental health recognised nationally – with more and more workplaces investing in having qualified and confident Mental Health First Aiders as a core part of their businesses.
We offer both Adult and Youth varieties of this course – with each course specifically tailored to focus on the difficulties which face Adults and Young People respectively.
Half-Day Mental Health First Aid Courses
If you’re not ready for the intensive two-day course, but would still like to learn more and boost your confidence, then a half-day MHFA course is a great place to start.
These introductory sessions take things back to basics – introducing some of the core concepts around mental health, whilst helping you to understand just how prevalent mental health problems are today.
Both Adult and Youth Varieties are available – and these are dependent on demand.
Mental Health Awareness
Our Mental Health Awareness sessions form the core of our Mental Health Training – and are one key way we are helping to tackle the stigma associated with mental health.
These sessions aim to provide access to free, open-access public sessions so that as many people as possible can book on and learn more about the topics which matter to them.
We have a range of sessions available – from introductory to more in-depth sessions themed around specific areas of mental health, such as Eating Disorders and Personality Disorders.
Mental Health Awareness – Social Media & Mental Health
Social Media is something which we constantly hear about on the news – and it is something which many of us use every single day.
There are many theories out there that Social Media impacts our mental health and wellbeing – but it can be hard to know what to believe. This course aims to change that.
Join us as we cut through the myths and give you the facts – exploring exactly how social media can be intrinsically tied to our mental health.
Suicide Prevention & Awareness Training
Funded by a multi-agency partnership as an important part of Kent County Council’s Suicide Prevention and Awareness Strategy, this course aims to encourage awareness and proactive intervention.
Over the course of a three-hour, interactive session, you will learn more about why someone may experience suicidal ideation – and crucially, how you can support them.
This is a fully funded course – with free spaces available as an important part of encouraging broader public awareness.
These are our current training offerings – but this is by no means an exhaustive list. Just because something is not available currently, it does not mean that we are not able to work with you to produce bespoke training to suit your needs. We are proud to work with a range of partners across the Mid Kent Area to develop training which makes a difference – and we would love to work with you, too!
