Independent Trainer Programme

4 Mental Health are pleased to announce the launch of our new Independent Trainer programme.

This programme is suited to individuals who are working and/or training within the mental health and wellbeing space and would like to deliver quality training materials that have been developed using the latest evidence-based principles and which have been peer reviewed by our International Expert Reference Group.

The training modules developed for the Independent Trainer programme currently consist of:

  • Emotional Resilience Module (v4.1F)
  • Community Suicide Awareness Module (v1.1F)

These modules have been specifically developed for delivery to the general community, non-clinical health and social care staff including first responders, workplace, education, and particularly third sector organisations.

It is our intention to add further modules over the next 12-24 months.

The new Independent Trainer Licence allows for unrestricted onward delivery to any parties – Fee charging for these onward deliveries is also permitted under this licence in accordance with the terms and conditions of the licence agreement. See Independent Trainer Agreement – Terms and Conditions.

 

Training Module Content Details:

 Module: Emotional Resilience Module (v4.1F)

The outcomes of this 3 hour module are:

    • Enhances delegates’ emotional literacy

    • Challenges the stigma that surrounds emotional distress and tackles barriers to help-seeking

    • Uses the ‘watercourse analogy’ to help delegates understand different levels of distress and shares effective self-help strategies
    • Uses the ‘sunflower analogy’ to help delegates understand wellbeing and resilience
    • Shares practical ways to develop and maintain emotional wellbeing and promotes the importance of this
    • It is suitable for the general public, including children over the age of 13, health and social care practitioners and professionals
    • Equips delegates to have a greater emotional literacy and know how to enhance their resilience (not mental toughness)
    • Equips delegates with the understanding of positive ways to cope with stress or emotional distress, to develop a personal plan to build their wellbeing and know where to access further support if they ever need help in the future
    • Equips the delegate with the knowledge of how to use StayingSafe.net to make their own Safety Plan

    This training is suitable for everyone over the age of 13 across all sectors, for example general community, non-clinical health and social care staff, first responders and armed forces/veterans, education, third sector professionals and volunteers, corporate sector and industry.

    Although not designed for qualified professionals working in mental health services, this module is ideal for non-qualified staff and can act as a platform to access the other Connecting with People modules.
