Welcome to the Mental Health Trainers website.

In Britain today, one person in four suffers from a mental health problem (MIND 2006). It is essential that social care and health workers have an understanding of the key issues in the field of mental health.

Mental Health Trainers was started in 1997 by Jessica McKoen who leads a team of specialist Associate Trainers and Service User Facilitators.

Our courses are engaging, stimulating and inspiring.  They aim to promote a positive, informed approach towards the needs of people with mental health issues and to enhance the working lives and skills of people who work with them.
