Description: 

Ripon YMCA is passionate about raising awareness and tackling the stigma of Mental Health. We are running a number of Mental Health Awareness sessions available for anyone in our community.

It is widely reported that 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem each year. And in young people suicide is the most common cause of death for boys aged 5 to 19 years old.

Our aim is to provide a basic free course that will increase the knowledge and understanding of Mental Health amongst members of our community and will cater for parents, professionals, volunteers and community members. Groups will be limited to 10 people and the training will be informal.

Our course will cover the following areas:

  • What is mental health
  • A basic guide to some common mental health issues
  • An introduction to looking after your own mental health and wellbeing
  • Resources and information to help you support someone who may be in distress or experiencing a mental health issue.

Available dates and times:

  • 25th of February 10am to noon
  • 26th of February 1pm to 3pm
  • 2nd of March 5 to 7pm
