During Mental Health Awareness Week we launched our Virtual Mental Health Awareness Training Course which can be undertaken from your front room with just a device and internet connection.

These sessions are delivered by a qualified trainer from our welfare team via secure web portals. Some of our industry leaders have already participated in our Virtual Mental Health Awareness Training sessions and we would like to say a huge thank you to them:
