Following the award of funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust to continue to develop the ‘Lifting the Lid’ campaign, we are now able to provide Mental Health (MH) training across staff, volunteers and RMA members.
The courses we have chosen are approved MH courses and are delivered by two organisations; IED Solutions and Moor Mindful both of which have strong connections to the Corps and excellent knowledge of our Corps Family and importantly the Charity.
These courses are designed to raise awareness of Mental Health issues, help to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness and to help spot the signs and symptoms when someone is becoming unwell.
All courses are delivered online, and the next available courses are:
9th November – Mental Health Awareness (Level 1)
Delivered by IED Solutions
8th March Mental Health Awareness – (timing TBC)
Further dates in 2022 to be annouced.
Zero Suicide Alliance
This free Step 1 training available from Zero Suicide Alliance gives vital awareness of how to approach someone who might be considering taking their own life and the Step 3 Training which will help reduce stigma and encourage safe and open conversations.
