You may be an individual looking to learn more about mental health or mindfulness, an employer wanting to support your staff with effective training, or a school/college looking to provide your children and young people with new ways to manage anxieties that you see arising in their experience.
Our qualified and experienced training team can provide the resources and tools needed to learn about mental health, wellbeing, self-compassion and mindfulness.
We regularly run open training courses for individuals, and offer competitive rates for any of our courses delivered directly to local businesses. We also welcome invitations to consult with businesses and design bespoke training courses or programmes to meet individual requirements.
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.
This course will develop your understanding of mental health so that you feel confident in supporting people experiencing difficulty.

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.
