Why you should book with us

Experience – Birmingham Mind has been delivering excellent mental health provision for over 50 years.

Choice and Flexibility – Whether you are looking for a 1 hour workshop or a full day’s training, we offer a range of options suitable for individuals and organisations. You can chose the date, time and location of your course and we will come to you!

We are a charity! Our training services help us to continue supporting the people who need us.

Value for money – We don’t receive any funding to deliver training or workshops so we do have to charge organisations for this, with our guideline prices starting at

  • £150 for an hour/ 2 hour session and
  • £650 for a whole day of training.

These are guide prices though, in the same way that we are facing huge financial pressures in terms of possible funding cuts we appreciate most other areas are to, so we are happy to talk about this and have been able to agree things like providing information stalls or taster sessions for free if they are connected to agreement for paid work – we’re very flexible!
