A new course is offering County Durham residents the chance to spot the early warning signs and better understand mental health.
‘Understanding Mental Health’ will take place on Monday, September 18 at Selby Close Common Room in St Helen Auckland, and will focus on how to prevent harm and give learners the confidence to provide help when needed.
Run by believe housing, the five-week programme covers issues such as helping to increase the speed of recovery and stopping issues from becoming worse.
believe housing Community Training Coordinator, Sean Robson, said: “Things are definitely improving, but mental health is still an area that suffers from stigma. By taking part, attendees will be able to identify ways to help others, provide advice and offer support.
“It will be a great way for anyone with an interest in mental health to find out more.”
