Why is Training Important?
Training is essential to equip people with tools, understanding and confidence to deal with all kinds of mental ill-health and well being issues. Given the current climate in the UK surrounding mental health, the likelihood of encountering issues both personally, and professionally is almost guaranteed.
Training provides participants with knowledge, awareness, and resources which they can utilise to support individuals and manage situations. Training will also reduce the stress one can experience through the uncertainty and anxiety associated with feeling like you don’t know how to support or approach someone suffering emotional distress.
