NEW DATE ADDED - Improve Your Understanding of Wellbeing and Resilience

7 February 2018 16:00-19:15, London, United Kingdom

This event is for RSC Members only

In the UK mental ill-health will affect one in four people over the next 12 months. There are particular issues affecting different types of organisations and disciplines, and it’s true that certain occupations experience higher than average rates of suicide, and patterns of distress, anxiety and depression, among other illnesses.

Could you spot the early warning signs of distress, anxiety or depression in yourself or your colleagues?

Would you feel able to talk to someone experiencing these symptoms? 

If not, then help is on the way with this course.

The training aims to help individuals better understand the signs and symptoms of mental ill-health and know how to communicate with people they are concerned about. This is not a counselling course, but provides basic information about how to manage important first conversations, provides some practical skills and where to point people to relevant sources of professional help. It also offers tips on stress management and staying well. We know that understanding more about our own mental health enables us to help and support others much easier. The workshops will be run by Trevor Bell, who was awarded the Platinum Award from Mental Health First Aid England.
