Training and workshops for organisations

Welcome to training with South Kent Mind 

One in four of us will experience mental health problems at some point in our lives.  As we continue to live and work within a new and evolving landscape, here at South Kent Mind we are acutely aware that ensuring the positive mental health and wellbeing of ourselves and those around us at home and work is more important – yet more difficult – than ever. 

We offer a varied and dynamic range of training opportunities and courses for individuals and businesses. Our courses will give you the tools and confidence you need to look after your own mental health and wellbeing, to support others and to respond in a helpful, supportive and non-stigmatising way. 

We are constantly adapting and developing what we offer and we are able to deliver bespoke programmes, so if you would like to discuss a particular requirement, please email our Training and Development Team on contact@southkentmind.org.uk or call 01303 250090.
