3) Wellbeing Network for your organisation

Your staff or colleagues have attended their MHFA training and then they find there is little or no follow-up support. Some feel overwhelmed as they are expected to fulfill the role on the back of their training.

 

We have created a framework that fits with your organisation offering professional support, continued learning and sharing of best practice. It's for MHFAiders and any staff interested in mental health.

 

The Wellbeing Network is a series of facilitated meetings skillfully embedding a supportive learning environment followed by a smooth and carefully planned handover to your organisation. So it's time-limited and resourceful.

 

The Network provides: -

  • effective conversations about mental health
  • mutual support, sharing best practice and learning
  • personal and professional development
  • develop expertise for the organisation
