1 in 4 of us will experience poor mental health at some point in our lives and if we don’t experience it ourselves, we will all have known someone who has been unwell.

The course will cover topics such as managing stress and how best to support and communicate with someone in distress.

“ I am more understanding and patient”
“It’s easier to talk to my relative”
“I found the programme enjoyable and useful”
