About the course

wellbeing in primary care

Please note, this course will now be taking place digitally.

Mental well-being is a term that is becoming increasingly common in popular culture and is relevant to clinical staff working in primary care. This one-day course is aimed at healthcare professionals (pharmacists, GPs, primary care nurses) working in the community who may encounter people in the early stages of mental distress. 

We will break the concept of well-being into key components, allowing participants to enhance their skills and confidence in promoting good mental health and preventions strategies, identifying when patients are at risk of deterioration, harnessing strengths and resilience factors, and accessing appropriate support.

The fusion of Education and the Health Service is extremely exciting and now indeed essential; I am thrilled that St Mary’s is at the forefront of this. I am truly invigorated to disseminate many nuggets of wisdom and tangible strategies gained yesterday to my entire school community.

The knowledge and skills help children in many areas e.g. friendships, learning, attitude, dealing with problems at home and school. Skills will stay with them as they progress helping them to be reflective and emotionally resilient.
