Mental health problems affect around one in four people in any given year, that’s around 36,000 people in North Somerset alone. There has been concern that these rates are likely to increase even further as a result of Covid-19, putting increasing pressure on existing services and organisations.
In response to these concerns North Somerset Council have announced the launch of the Online Public Mental Health training programme for 2020, covering issues such as bereavement, grief, suicide and general mental health awareness and skills. The courses are free to anyone who works or volunteers in North Somerset and are aimed explicitly at the community and voluntary sector.
