Frequently asked questions

  • How many other students will be on a course with me?

    Group sizes are kept small so that you have the best chance of learning and can develop your knowledge and understanding. Some courses, depending on the topic may have maximum limits set to ensure that we’re able to offer a supportive environment to learn. Typical group sizes are between 10 -12 learners. Please check with us if this is something you are concerned about.

  • How will I learn?

    Our courses and workshops are co-delivered by volunteer course facilitators working with health care and educational professionals. Our volunteers have a wealth of both personal and professional experience of mental health, maintaining their own wellbeing or the wellbeing of someone that they care for or support.

  • Will I need to pay for a course?

    The majority of our courses are free for everyone.  However, on occasion due to funding, there may be a charge made to learners who are not in receipt of specific benefits or low income.  This will be clearly stated on all course publicity.  Please ask us if you would like further details.

  • Can I bring a supporter or family member with me?

    Yes.  We are happy for learners to attend with a carer, supporter or staff member who supports them.

    Please note that your supporter must register, enrol and can participate in the sessions.
