Mental Health and Stress Awareness – Training for Trainers

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

To mark national Mental Health Awareness Week in May this year, the Health Promotion Workplace team will be launching a project to support workplaces in Fife to understand more about the topic of mental health and stress.

We are inviting representatives from workplaces in Fife to attend a ‘Training for Trainers’ session on Thursday 11th May.

The aim of this session is to:

  • Develop knowledge and awareness of mental health and stress
  • Increase confidence within organisations to deliver training in-house on this topic
  • Provide a framework for workplaces to develop their own workshops, awareness raising sessions, toolbox talks or similar.

This session is suited to all staff that may have an interest or responsibility for staff health and wellbeing including Managers, HR, Occupational Health, Health and Safety, Organisational Development, etc.

It would be useful if you have some experience or knowledge of delivering training already, although this isn’t crucial. What we cover on the day will be dependent on the knowledge and experience of the group so there may be room for some flexibility.

We anticipate that the outcome of the ‘Training for Trainers’ session will be workplaces delivering or incorporating elements of the session into their own in-house training offer. We hope to be able to support this further beyond the session on 11th May and start to build a network of people engaged in delivering this type of training in workplaces across Fife.

If you are interested in getting involved with this project please reply to [email protected] and a member of the team will be in touch to discuss the project with you further.
