Mental Health Training
Sourcing the most appropriate mental health training can often be challenging given the extensive range of providers and resources available. In view of the current landscape and the significant impact that COVID-19 has had on our mental health and wellbeing, there has never been a more important time to ensure that clubs, coaches and all of the workforce are in the best place possible to source the most relevant training and support the mental health of both themselves and their participants.
We have been working closely with our friends at Sport Structures to complete a mental health training review to really make simple the mental health training process for the sporting sector and beyond. This concise breakdown of mental health training will provide clarity and transparency around the current offer and will help make sourcing the most appropriate and relevant mental health training as straightforward as possible.
Mental Health Training Decision Tree
The mental health training decision tree will help identify what courses are most relevant to both you and/or your organisation.
From course duration, to cost and everything in between, the decision tree will help you find the right mental health training course for you.
