FREE Mental Health Awareness Training
As COVID restrictions are lifted, not everyone is feeling better.
Mental health training is one of the key ways of changing the experience of people affected by poor mental health in Herefordshire.
Through this time limited FREE training, we aim to enable people to feel more comfortable and confident to talk about mental health and know more about how to respond when problems arise.
Mental Health Awareness training – 3 hours, face to face or online
