About the Event

Do you go above & beyond for someone with mental health challenges?  Would you like to learn new ways to support both your own, as well as their mental health and wellbeing?

This training aims to help individuals supporting a loved one (friend, family member, peer, fellow student, colleague) with lived experience of mental health challenges.

  • Empowering individuals to create the best possible environment that supports everyone’s emotional and mental wellbeing.
  • Improved personal wellbeing, knowledge and skills set.         
  • Carers group KS2 Bath believe that carers, who can feel isolated and overwhelmed, should receive quality training in the same way that staff do. KS2 Bath commissioned and developed the carers training in collaboration with St Mungo's and with support from the local Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP) NHS Trust and BANES Carers Centre
  • The training consists of four sessions:

1. Understanding mental health challenges

An opportunity to explore what it can be like to experience mental health challenges & how mental health needs can impact on people’s behaviour

2.  Support people with mental health needs to make changes

To explore some of the challenges of supporting people to make changes and introduces some techniques for working with change.

3.  Conflict and crisis

Reducing and managing conflict and crises with the person you support

4.  Learning, reflecting and support

To be better able to establish clear boundaries, positive communication & relationships

Supporters who come on the course have usually been caring for over a year and are looking to enhance the way they provide support.
