What is it?

A theatre-based workshop in which we meet a number of colleagues that are either experiencing a variety of mental health problems, or are in some way impacted by others who may be suffering. The workshop is designed to be fun, engaging, and at times challenging. It will reflect some of the real-life scenarios that we experience in the workplace.

embedding the learning.

Using a theatre-based learning approach to this course, we believe it helps really embed the experience of understanding mental well-being.

Because we experience first hand by observing a set of scenarios, we feel empathy and understanding with the characters and this helps drive a deeper sense of learning.

We can also support this with our blended and fully online course that can be used to top and tail our classroom-based experience.

Some faq's about Mental Health Awareness Training.

0.1 What is Theatre based learning?
Theatre Based Learning is the technique we use to bring learning to life by using our actors to perform scenarios, based on real case studies. Theatre Based Learning can be either observational (where learners watch scenes and discuss) OR participative (where we use techniques like real-play and practice, forum where learners interact with the actors and direct them or hot-seating where learners give feedback to individual characters and make suggestions)
0.2What are the benefits of Mental Health Awareness training?
With 70 million lost working days per year due to mental health issues, now is the time to train your staff on how to understand and identify mental healthin the workplace. An open and inclusive workplace has many benefits - both to the organisation and to individuals; such benefits include an increase in morale, better staff retention and improved company reputation.
