Four courses designed to give a thorough overview of the key issues in mental health and mental illness, and what implications this has for the workplace. We bring the training to you and all of the training is accredited by APT (The Association for Psychological Therapies), backed by the weight of over 100,000 professionals having attended APT courses since foundation in 1981. Standardly, these courses are of a half-day duration, but we can up-skill you to whatever level you wish.
A half day course, for everybody. We bring this course to you and train a group of 6-15 people.
This course spells out what you can do to develop your own mental good health in the workplace, as well as that of your colleagues.
As such it empowers everyone (managers and non-managers alike) to take good care of themselves. It covers (a) the major diagnoses in mental illness, (b) the 4 bases you need to cover to maintain good mental health and help others do so; and (c) how the material covered meshes with your workplace.
A half-day course, for managers and directors. We bring this course to you and train a group of 6-15 people
This course is for managers and directors and focuses on how to manage in a way that generates good mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, and doing so in a realistic way that works well for everybody.
Many people spend more time at work than they spend (awake) anywhere else, so it is imperative that we do our best to get it right in the workplace. So this course spends only a little time on the mental health difficulties that beset people, and focuses instead on what you as a manager or director can do to foster good mental health and wellbeing in a way that is built in to your organisation. So we are not talking about ‘add-ons’ we are talking about your fundamental style and strategy, and operating a style and strategy that is good for your employees / colleagues and therefore very definitely good for your organisation in a realistic and measurable way.
A half day course, for people working with the public. We bring this course to you and train a group of 6-15 people.
This course is for people interacting with the general public as part of their jobs, to enable you to better understand mental health problems and unusual behaviour, and respond helpfully.
There are a number of jobs where knowledge of mental health issues, and the ability to respond well to disturbed or unusual behaviour, is beneficial both to the professional and the member of the public. These include jobs in public service facilities such as hospitals and libraries, jobs in the hospitality sector (such as pubs restaurants and hotels) and many more. So this course covers the major mental health problems that present themselves, the sort of behaviour associated with these problems, and the most helpful way to respond: helpful both for the person concerned and for you the professionals.
A 2-day Course (also available as individual days).
Children’s mental health is a serious area of concern – around 10% of children are now reported to have a diagnosable mental health condition and of these, most report delays in accessing appropriate help.
The course is split into two parts, echoing the World Health Organisation’s definition of health as ‘complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’.
Day One is about having your school set up so that it naturally generates good mental health and wellbeing. Day Two is to help you spot people who are having problems, and signpost your best course of action. You can attend either or both days.
If you represent an organisation with many thousands of employees then do get in touch with us for a bespoke solution.
We may not respond to a standard tender invitation, but we are delighted to talk properly with you to find an ideal solution for you. After all, nobody knows as much as you do about your organisation, and we know all there is to know about mental health, so together we can develop the best strategy. Achieving that stands to benefit your people and your organisation to a great degree and with maximum cost-effectiveness; implementing anything else can result in all manner of trouble.
APT’s own pledge to support mental health and wellbeing in the workplace; this is what we aspire to and believe we achieve. We hope that you too may wish to aspire to it.
This is a new award to highlight the importance of this subject. People spend so much time in the workplace that anything we can do there to foster good mental health is likely to pay off handsomely for everybody.
