Everyone has mental health. We at Manx Minds believe that maintaining and improving mental health doesn't just happen. It is vital to know and understand the steps we need to take to maintain good mental health. Stress and anxiety are a normal part of life, but when issues such as these begin to overwhelm you, or someone you know, are you equipped with the right words and reactions to help and not hinder?
That is where we come in. We passionately believe that our training gives people the tools they need to care for themselves and others. We want to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. We want break down the barriers and support people to stay well, recover, or manage their symptoms in order to thrive in learning, work and life.
Based in Ramsey, Isle of Man, Manx Minds flagship course is the Mental Health First Aid - 2 day - Adult course and is the only on Island organisation offering accredited "Mindapples" training to companies and individuals who want to learn more about and improve their skills in dealing with a range of mental health and well-being issues.
