Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria ICS are offering funded places on mental health awareness and suicide prevention courses - run by Lancashire Mind - until the end of March 2022.
These courses are offered both virtually and face-to face and are a great opportunity to raise awareness of mental health and enable you to support someone who may be struggling or to talk more confidently about topics such as suicide prevention, self harm and general mental health issues.
Last year Lancashire Mind trained 1600 people virtually, delivering safe and responsible training sessions to ensure every learner feels supported. Having the knowledge and skill set to have an honest, open conversation about mental health, either in a professional or personal capacity, can make a real difference in someone's life, so don't miss out on this opportunity to upskill yourself personally or your workplace team.
Open access courses are available to fit in around your work life, or you can organise a closed session for your organisation, dependent on learner numbers. For more information, please email [email protected]

Self-harm Co-production Workshop for CYP professionals
Lancashire Mind are looking for a group of children and young person (CYP) professionals who support CYP mental health or work with young people who self-injure to feed into a co-produced workshop.
We have been working with a small group of parents to develop a workshop for parents of children and young people who self-injure.
We would love to hear from you on what you feel would be helpful to support such parents.
If you would like to be involved in a virtual, co-production session with other CYP professionals, please email: [email protected]
