Mental Health Education and Training for local businesses, organisations and agencies

One of Herefordshire Mind's objectives is to educate people about mental health. We do this in a number of ways:  

Mental Health Training

We provide speakers to a wide range of organisations who are interested in finding out more about mental health issues. This can range from a half-hour talk about our work through to a day's training on specific mental health issues. We also offer courses for companies wishing to promote everyday well-being for employees who may be at risk from the effects of stress.

Please contact our Head Office for more details or to discuss your requirements. 

Youth Mental Health First Aid

Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised two day training course, designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health in young people and provide help on a first aid basis. The training can be attended by anyone from 16 upwards and is relevant for people who teach, work, live with and care for 8 to 18 year olds, including young people themselves. For more information about Youth Mental Health First Aid click here.

The trainer for Youth MHFA is Kate Lee, who is an associate trainer and friend of Herefordshire Mind. Kate has over fifteen years' experience teaching and training and with experience of the mental health care system as both a professional and a service user. She brings a unique perspective to training events. She works with businesses and third sector organisations to train members in mental health awareness and Mental Health First Aid. Kate also works with organisations to create bespoke training packages to meet their specific needs.

Kate hopes to engage people to have much-needed conversations about mental health and emotional well-being and to empower trainees with a knowledge and understanding that will improve the health and quality of life for themselves and for others.

"Excellent subject knowledge, a warm, kind and caring personality and a very interesting session"

Mental Health Awareness for Sport and Physical Activity

Our three-hour workshop, developed with support from sports coach UK, is designed for coaches, sport administrators, volunteers and front of house staff. We’ve listened to people living with mental health problems and people working in the sport and physical activity sector to create a practical workshop that will help you: 

• Understand common misconceptions about mental health and how stigma and discrimination impacts on people with mental health problems. 

• Identify the positive impact that being active has on physical and mental health. 

• Appreciate the barriers that stop people with mental health problems getting active. 

• Talk confidently about mental health and know where to signpost people who need support. 

• Identify practical actions for making your service more inclusive and accessible for everyone. 


• Herefordshire Mind can deliver the training for staff in-house at the location of your choice – or as an open workshop for individuals at locations across the West Midlands and parts of the South West.

• Up to 20 delegates can attend each workshop. 

• 325 - 425 per three-hour workshop (depending on location).
