Secondary care - physical health

Training courses

Mental health issues are common in general hospital settings. However, surveys show that hospital staff have low levels of mental health knowledge and lack confidence in dealing with problems that arise. The expectations of our patients, their families and healthcare regulators mean that this needs to be addressed.

As organisations move from critical incident management into recovery planning, all hospitals have multiple challenges on a mental health front. At Maudsley Learning, we can work closely with your team to create bespoke mental health training for your hospital staff, meaning the course can meet the specific training needs of your organisation. , or Alternatively, you can purchase one of our standard courses below.
