Thanks to commissioning from HEE, we have been able to provide funded places on this course to increasing numbers of healthcare professionals, extending our mission to make quality mental health training available to all.
There has been variability in attendance on some of our courses, which can impact the quality of delivery and lead to cancellations. We ask that you let us know if you are no longer able to attend a course so that we can offer your place to someone else on the waiting list. In some cases, your line manager may be notified, where we have no record of a cancellation. We understand the immense pressure that you are under in the current working climate and appreciate you taking the time to get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: For our courses to achieve their set objectives, we require a minimum number of participants to run the course on the day. Should bookings fall below the required number of participants, we may cancel this course.
Discounted rates are available for group bookings. Please contact us for more information. Maudsley Learning has a full range of courses to meet the needs of your organisation. Most can be delivered to you flexibly and tailored to your requirements.
We are able to offer custom-made programs, whether digital or face to face, to meet the education and training needs of your organisation in the UK or internationally.
We value research and knowledge-sharing and will continue to contribute to the literature base on mental health education, addressing important research questions in this exciting field.
