Become Mental Health Aware – Online Training

How is this course delivered

Virtual learning – this is where a classroom based experience is delivered online, via our ted Learning Hub.  Instead of a full day in the classroom, we break the session down into bite-size interactions.  Learners can join from any location and participate in the training experience.  Our virtual classroom features break out rooms, drama-based learning with our actors & discussions.

 We limit time in this environment to around 40-minute sessions to maintain learner engagement.

Putting it into practice

A pleasant session, smart and short

Entain

Difficult Conversation Training

I am a quiet and reflective person and find 'role play' type exercises very difficult and do not feel I learn from them due to the anxiety they cause me. However the set up with the actors made it very believable and the interaction from them was excellent.

North Yorkshire Police

Inclusion, Equality & Diversity

I think this course is excellent. Seeing scenarios helps people to identify how easily discrimination is spoken and not addressed. Many people like to say they are not raciest, sexiest, etc but their actions say something else. Great course
