Mind launches free mental health training for small charities
Organisations of fewer than 250 staff are now able to access three training modules on the Mental Health for Small Workplaces website.
Small and medium organisations account for 99% of the businesses in the UK. But research shows that, when it comes to mental health, they often fall behind larger organisations.
Mind know that there are unique challenges, as well as unique opportunities, that come with working in smaller businesses. They've put together a collection of resources designed to help, focused on Mind's new, free and quick eLearning, Mental Health for Small Workplaces.
Mental Health for Small Workplaces is made up of three modules:
- Building your awareness
- Looking after yourself
- Supporting each other
They're quick, free and easy to access—and they were made in conjunction with the Federation of Small Businesses and employees of smaller organisations across the country.
This toolkit contains everything you need to start making a difference.
On their website, you'll find:
- the Mental Health for Small Workplaces eLearning;
- a brief guide with ideas to help you roll it out to your colleagues and staff;
- a comprehensive handbook filled with advice and tips for small business owners and the self-employed;
- and a practical tool that you can quickly and easily implement to start making a difference straight away.
