Free Training Courses

As part of the North Yorkshire Community Learning Partnership we are providing access to a free interactive online training course and self-help tool that will guide you through maintaining good mental health, educate you on the types of conversations to have with friends and family members and give you a better understanding of mental health. 

Champion Health focuses on how we can be proactive in preventing a crisis through building resilience and learning skills to enhance productivity. The tool includes information on spotting the signs of stress, anxiety, and depression and when, where and how to signpost someone on for further support. 

It will take you approximately 45 minutes to complete the CPD accredited course and on completion you will receive a Champion of Mental Health Certificate, valid for 1 year. 

Psychological First Aid training

Open to all frontline and essential workers and volunteers.

On 15 June is Public Health England (PHE) is launching updated Psychological First Aid (PFA) training module, aimed at all frontline and essential workers and volunteers. The course teaches the key principles of giving psychological first aid in emergencies and aims to increase awareness and confidence to provide this support to people affected by COVID-19. PFA is a globally recognised training in emergency situations and PHE has been developed this new course as part of our national incident response, and in partnership with NHS England, Health Education England, FutureLearn and others.

By the end of the course, outcomes will include: understanding how emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic can affect us, recognising people who may be at increased risk of distress and understanding how to offer practical and emotional support.

We need to talk

‘We need to talk’ is an e-learning programme that has been developed for the wider public health workforce including voluntary sector, emergency services, prison staff and prison listeners and all staff in health and social care. 

The purpose of this programme is to support the ambition of reducing the stigma associated with suicide, to help everyone see that simply asking someone how they are and talking about suicide can really help.  

The programme is based on four storylines of people who are at increased risk of dying by suicide.  During these four video scenarios, the learner will have the opportunity to reflect on their own learning. The learner will be able to complete the entire programme at once, which takes approximately between 60 and 90 minutes, or complete at their own pace in smaller section.
