Senior leadership training on Mental Health Care (Kingston Hospital)
This is a course funded by Kingston Hospital as part of a package of projects to improve mental health training within the acute trust setting.
The course is specifically tailored for doctors whose roles require them to be responsible for making management decisions that have an influence on individuals with co-morbid mental health conditions within the acute trust.
Participants will be involved in a full day of interactive online classroom-based learning. During this they will be introduced to many key topics which impact their work.
The key topics covered will initially look at broader aspects of clinical care which includes service provisions within mental health services and legal frameworks which govern their practice. Following this, there will be a focus on how physical and mental health needs interface with each other.
Just as importantly, the course will teach participants the skills in improving their teams’ personal well-being. This includes looking at models that would help facilitate reflective conversations, how to support staff during periods of difficulties, and help improve personal well-being. This is especially essential in the context of work-related stress during these difficult times.
The course covers:
- • Overview of common mental health conditions
• Recognising the interface between the mind and body.
• Understanding the organisation of the Mental Health Service
• Overview of Legal Framework at the core of Mental Health Service
• Identifying and Supporting staff at the workplace
• Improving personal well-being and self-care
