Blue Light Programme

We are very excited to be involved in National Minds Programme to deliver training to Blue Light workers. National Minds research shows that the estimated quarter of a million people who work and volunteer in the emergency services are even more at risk of experiencing a mental health problem than the general population, but are less likely to get support.   Blue Light

Birmingham Mind has been delivering Blue Light resilience training course sessions to emergency service workers across Birmingham, with participants from West Midlands Police, Fire Service and Ambulance service.
