A Mental Health and Coronavirus online training course has been designed using the British Red Cross’ experience of helping people cope with crises. This short and easy to access online training is aimed at those who may be finding isolation challenging during the lockdown, are experiencing loneliness, anxiety or stress, or are simply struggling with furlough or working from home.

The course takes around 30 minutes to complete, with the ability to pause and come back to it whenever you like. Through this mental health and wellbeing training, you will learn how to build and maintain resilience during these challenging times and how you can improve the mental health and wellbeing of yourself and others.

Fr Joe has done some mental health training recently and has found it to be immensely valuable:  “As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to disrupt our lives and the way we socialise and work, it’s important not to ignore our mental health and wellbeing.”
