Mental Health Training

We recently secured funding to deliver certified Mental Health First Aid Training. We collaborated with BeWell who delivered the training in Chester, Stockport, and online. As a result, 46 people, both lay and clergy, working with vulnerable people from across the diocese of Chester were enabled to become qualified Mental Health First Aiders.

We hope to offer more training in the future, so watch this space!
