Frequently asked questions

questions on training

Your questions on our mental health training courses answered

How much does it cost?

We receive funding for some programmes for specific public and community sector staff and volunteers, meaning our training is offered to you at low cost. When we run a bespoke training course in-house at your workplace, we charge competitive rates, reflecting the fact that we are a local charity committed to raising awareness and tackling stigma and discrimination around mental health.

Where does training take place?

Our training is run at venues across West Sussex including Bognor, Chichester, Crawley, Horsham, Shoreham and Worthing, with bespoke courses run in-house at your place of work.

Who has benefited from Mind's training?

Those who have attended our training include people working in children and young people's services, frontline staff in emergency services, GPs, nurses and receptionists in doctor's surgeries, people involved with adult health and social care, and local authority and housing association staff. 

Some bespoke programmes have been run in-house for:

  • Butlins
  • Citizens Advice Bureau
  • Condair
  • Cruse (bereavement care) in Arun and Chichester
  • Horsham District Council
  • Oakgrove College
  • Southern Housing
  • Worthing College.

Who runs the training?

Our courses are delivered by experienced and qualified trainers. We also aim to have a trainer or co-trainer who has personal experience of mental health problems on each course.
