MHNE Training

MHNE Training is the training arm of Mental Health North East, a charity that works to improve and protect mental health services in the region.

Our aim - is to educate and inform employers and staff about mental health. Mental health problems affect 1 in 4 people each year* so most employers can expect to encounter the issue at some point.

Mental Health Training

Our training helps build understanding and awareness of mental health so that employers:

  • can spot the early warning signs;
  • are comfortable talking to people about mental health issues;
  • know how to manage staff mental health appropriately; and can signpost people to additional support if it’s needed.
