“Training is everything,” Mark Twain once said. But with public leaders under intense pressure to steer a course through the deepest austerity cuts in postwar Britain, training and development is being hugely affected.
The 360people recognise that individuals need a well-balanced life to be able to have a good mental health. One in Four pulls together four well recognised, well respected and well evaluated training programmes into one arena over two days offering those who engage with mental health in a professional and volunteer capacity the opportunity to gain a good level of knowledge and skill in the briefest time period at an affordable cost.
We realise that although statutory training has to be the lynch pin of training across organisations to ensure that all the mandatory measures to assure quality of service are realised, at the same time there is a clear need to ensure that those working at the coal face of mental health and well-being need to access highly reputed, well tested, quality training opportunities in this field. But we also recognise this needs to be affordable, hence the One in Four Approach.
