Get Help. Mental Health Awareness.

Mental Health Awareness training to support colleagues facing mental health problems.

The concept of good mental health describes a sense of general wellbeing, the capacity to live in a resourceful and fulfilling manner and having the resilience to deal with the obstacles that life presents.

Mental health problems may be defined as those in which an individual is distracted from ordinary daily living by disturbing and upsetting thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
