Course information

Who can attend the workshop?
The workshop is open to front line workers and volunteers from not-for-profit organisations, which support Warrington residents. The training is aimed at people whose work role includes supporting others to improve their mental wellbeing.

Purpose
The aims of the workshop are to:

  • familiarise people with the “wellbeing” section of Warrington’s mental health awareness website Happy? OK? Sad?
  • provide people with knowledge of where they can find a range of free evidenced-based self-help resources, that they can pass on to the people they support, to help them maintain or improve their mental wellbeing

Learning outcomes
Following the workshop we anticipate people will be able to:

  • explain what mental wellbeing is and why it’s important to promote it
  • demonstrate where, on the Happy? OK? Sad? site free, self-help resources for maintaining, or improving mental wellbeing can be found
  • briefly explain three key resources or campaigns for promoting mental wellbeing

Workshop content
This interactive workshop focuses on mental wellbeing. During the session people are guided around the “looking after our mental wellbeing” section of the Happy OK? Sad? site, and shown the range of self-help resources relating to mental wellbeing, which they can access through the site.

The workshop includes a PowerPoint presentation, discussion in small groups and exercises illustrating different self-help resources that people can use to look after their mental wellbeing.

An important part of looking after mental wellbeing is asking for help and support. The workshop reflects this, as it covers where on the site people can find information about mental health support services. It also guides people through routes into services if someone needs urgent help.

Workshop duration: One hour 30 minutes.
