Educating professional groups about recovery
Increasing community awareness
Education & Training
Mind currently offers two training courses.
Transition to Support Facilitation: a 2 day training program
This 2-day training focuses on the role of the care coordinator and how it differs from and compliments that of similar roles such as a community mental health practitioner or a case manager. It will highlight the differentiating skills, knowledge and approaches needed to effectively navigate for better outcomes for clients.

Mental Health Peer Work: a 5 day training course
This course has been developed for people with a lived experience of mental ill health and recovery so they can provide peer support, and undertake peer work roles. Click here for a more detailed description of the training.

- Making presentations at conferences and seminars
- Hosting visits from international delegations
- Talks by various staff members in their local communities.
- Being involved in lectures and seminars at universities and other educational institutions.
Mind clients are available to talk to groups through our Ambassadors of Hope program.
