To mark World Mental Health Day on 10 October 2020, join WKM for one of their NEW interactive online workshops. These short sessions will help you to understand the impact of stress, to recognise the signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression, and how to support yourself and others.

As a charity, we are dependent on the income from our training courses to enable us to continue supporting people in our local community. 

Feedback on these short workshops:

“Great insight gained, thank you”

“Anxiety & Depression can affect everyone differently, and being able to understand that impact is so important, especially when working in a role where it is very common. This training helped me understand the early signs and triggers better and will help me to use it to help others”
