Mind In Salford - For Better Mental Health

Mental Health Awareness Training

We provide Mental Health Awareness Training to organisations throughout Greater Manchester.

The training takes participants through mental health definitions, the needs of people with mental health issues and how to respond, myth busting and stigma around mental ill health, and how to look after our own mental well-being and mental health in the workplace.
