Education Courses Intro

Connecting with People (CwP) provides a comprehensive, organisational response to mental health awareness, including self-harm and suicide awareness, prevention and response.  

We are able to offer all Higher Education Institutions a range of bite sized training courses to ensure that participants attend modules that are appropriate to their employed role. We want course attendees to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence required to respond appropriately and safely to someone experiencing mental health concerns. The modules include a triage assessment to improve the consistency and appropriateness of the response to someone engaging in self harm or experiencing suicidal thoughts.

Our evidence-based, peer-reviewed training considers mental health from a ‘safeguarding’ perspective and is delivered by a team of passionate, highly skilled trainers; all with significant working experience.

We are able to deliver training at a venue of your choice and offer two modes of delivery:

’Direct to Participant’ modules are offered to smaller educational establishments and designed to train up to 30 delegates at a time (smaller groups and multiple sessions can be easily arranged).

Train the Trainer’ programmes are a more cost-effective approach for larger educational establishments. We can assist in selecting a team of in-house trainers who will be able to deliver unlimited training throughout the institution, once they have met a required standard and become licensed trainers.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information, we welcome enquiries and we are happy to advise if you’re unsure which mode of delivery or modules would be beneficial.
