Home > Training > Our work with Schools, Colleges & Universities

We are very proud to have developed relationship with a number of schools, colleges and universities in Birmingham and surrounding areas, as we know how important clear accessible information about maintaining Wellbeing, building resilience and coping with Mental Health problems is for young people. Recent statistics suggest that 75% of adults with Mental Health Problems started to become unwell before they were 18.

What we offer

Most commonly we offer bespoke training courses and workshops, working with a growing number of schools, colleges and universities on specific areas around mental health needs, that have led to new sessions being developed.

Birmingham Mind is able to provide Mental Health Awareness training sessions to different numbers of people, ranging from pupils, by class, year group or the whole school. We can also deliver sessions just for staff.

As an example, please see below some of our most recently delivered sessions

  • One day Mental Health Awareness & Wellbeing course, for Year 7 teaching and non-teaching staff.
  • One hour session for Year 9 pupils on Anxiety and Exam stress.
  • One hour session for school teachers on the general area of Anxiety.
  • A Mental Health Awareness workshop, which we have delivered to students in schools and colleges. (This can be adapted in terms of how long it takes, but has tended to be either an hour or an hour and a half in length but could easily be turned into a half-day session. This workshop wherever possible has a member of the training team delivering it, who has personal experience of severe mental health issues and this has proven to be a very successful way of getting messages across from the feedback we have received from both students and teachers who’ve taken part)

Birmingham Mind is able to provide training that suits the budget and time of the school and we will work with you to deliver what is the most appropriate training for your needs.
