Further to Government guidance with regard to the continuously evolving response to COVID19, Norfolk and Waveney Mind has taken the decision to postpone all our classroom based training and mindfulness courses until future notice.
However, we are delighted to be able to offer a small number of our courses and workshops virtually. Please continue to check back on the training pages of our website for more information, dates and details as they become available.
Whilst we are developing and refining our virtual offering, we are pricing our training courses and workshops at cost - below our usual rates - to support local people, and businesses and their employees, during the pandemic.
This FREE course aims to increase confidence, knowledge and understanding of suicide and enable delegates to effectively support someone experiencing suicidal thoughts.
This course is sponsored by Norfolk County Council and is free to attend. It is aimed at those working in higher risk occupations and work place settings where they are more likely to encounter a person at risk of suicide.
- Date – Wednesday 16 September 2020, 9:30am-4:30pm
- Venue – Swaffham Assembly Rooms, Market Place, Swaffham, PE37 7AB
Suicide is a difficult and emotive topic, so if you have any concerns about your ability to take part in the training please feel free to get in touch with the Training Team for an informal discussion.
Priority will be given to those working in higher risk occupations and work place settings where they are more likely to encounter a person at risk of suicide.
1 in 4 people will experience some form of mental distress during their lifetime.
During this current pandemic, that number is likely to increase.
That means you’re likely to know someone – a friend, family member or colleague – who is affected or to be affected yourself.
The problem is there’s still a lot of stigma attached to mental health and people shy away from the issue. All too often when colleagues, friends or family are experiencing mental distress, they don’t feel comfortable talking about it.
" Such a fantastic training session. Learnt so much useful stuff, that I will absolutely do my best to apply.
Thank you! "
Wellbeing in a time of crisis
Fear is a perfectly natural response to a disease outbreak.
But many people are experiencing additional worry and stress at this current time due to lockdown restrictions relating to isolation from work and colleagues, friends and loved ones.
As a direct response to the coronavirus pandemic, Norfolk and Waveney Mind’s Training Team has developed a 1.5 hour workshop: Wellbeing in time of crisis.
