Free Mental Health Awareness Sessions for Voluntary Sector Organisations

Mental Health Awareness

Thanks to a grant we were awarded by the Morrison’s Foundation, we will be running a series of Mental Health Awareness Sessions, FREE to voluntary sector organisations in the Black Country area.

The aim of these awareness sessions are to teach people what mental health is, how to manage it and how to recognise the signs and symptoms to help other people who are experiencing mental health problems.

In these sessions you will learn:

  • What is mental health?
  • How do we manage this?
  • Types of common mental health problems
  • Signs and symptoms – what to look for
  • Ways to manage our mental health
  • Where to go for support
