The RCVS Mind Matters Initiative (MMI) is relaunching its training programme and has opened the tender process that prospective providers interested in helping develop and deliver the new training sessions can apply for. The updated mental health training programme will provide participants with a broader range of topics to attend training on, including some new strands for 2021.
The MMI training team have already started working with external organisations and individuals to update some existing training courses. However, the tender process is now open for organisations to submit a proposal detailing how they can support the development and delivery of training across four new training strands. The new areas of training are:
- General awareness of mental health and wellbeing
- How to support others with their mental health and wellbeing
- Looking after yourself
- Equality, Diversity, Inclusion
When asked about the tender process and what MMI is looking for from prospective applicants, Lisa Quigley, Mind Matters Initiative Manager, said: “All MMI training sessions are extremely well-attended, and we always get such positive feedback from participants. We are excited to be expanding our training programme and are looking for partners who have experience in creating and delivering remote training sessions to work with us. We are looking for providers who have experience in developing training that supports participants with their mental health or teaches them how to support others with their mental wellbeing. We are also keen to hear from providers who can support us with creating training courses on improving equality and diversity in the workplace.”
