Wellbeing training for all pharmacy staff


Derbyshire LPC are pleased to announce that we have secured funding for over 100 places on a Wellbeing Awareness Course. This is open to all pharmacy teams across Derbyshire and Derby City. Initially we would like at one person per pharmacy to undertake this training. More space may become available early January 2023 for more staff per pharmacy to attend.

Overview of Adult Mental Health Awareness Course

All sessions are co-delivered by 2 experienced Mental Health England Accredited instructors

The Mental Health England 5-hour Mental Health Awareness Course is designed to raise awareness of mental health and includes:

  • · What mental health is and how to challenge stigma
  • · A basic knowledge of some common mental health issues
  • · An introduction to looking after your own mental health and maintaining wellbeing
  • · Confidence to have a conversation about a mental health issue.


Online workshops

  • · This online course is delivered through online conferencing called Zoom -you do not have to pay anything to link to the Zoom session
  • · The Zoom virtual session will be delivered as 2 sessions of 2.5 hours – you must attend both sessions – see dates below
  • · Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities and so will be expected to engage through out the sessions
  • · A maximum of 12 people per session which will ensure that the instructors can keep people safe and supported while they learn, and to maximise delegate engagement.


On completion of the course

  • A certificate of attendance to say you are Mental Health Aware
