Mental health Monday (15 March)

Mental health awareness session
 
Trish Harle
 
Go 4 It Training
 
 

At Go4it we believe in further educating our students in wellbeing and taking care of their own, as well as helping others who are experiencing difficulties with their mental health.

This introductory session will give you an understanding and awareness of people’s behaviours and why they may say/do things that they do and the importance of listening and knowing when and how to react to what they are being told.

During this short introduction, we aim to focus on Depression, Anxiety and Stress, which we believe are the main issues that people are facing due to the Covid virus and restrictions. Every participant will be invited to participate in further funded Mental Health First Training at the end of the delivery. 

We guarantee everyone will take something away from this knowledge – whether it be new knowledge or the confidence to ask for help.

Laughter workshop/Vision boarding

Yorkshire in Business

When laughter is used it creates a distance between the dis-ease and the mind, enabling healing to take place. Endorphins are a natural pain relieving chemical which when released can leave one pain free and de-stressed. 1 hour session – Maximum 10 people. Come along for a laugh you will be glad you did.
