Five Ways to Wellbeing Training

16 March 2016 BVSC, 138 Digbeth, Birmingham, B5 6DR

Mental health should be everyone’s business because many of us have or will experience mental health problems at some point during our lives. Mental health impacts on all aspects of people’s lives: people with mental health problems often have fewer qualifications, are more likely to be unemployed, are more likely to live in disadvantaged areas and are more likely to experience poor physical health.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing Training is a mental health awareness program that incorporates evidence-based public health messages to promote wellbeing. It is aimed at frontline staff who provide services to the public.

Learning outcomes:

  • To have an understanding of what good mental health is and what helps to support it
  • To have a range of facts and figures to draw on which illustrate the incidence of mental health problems within the UK and within particular groups
  • To have an overview of the medical classification of common mental illness
  • Be familiar with a broad definition of wellbeing
  • Understand the background to and the main focus of the Five Ways to Wellbeing
