NFDC MENTAL HEALTH COURSES

Since signing the Building Mental Health Charter, NFDC has invested heavily in building capability to support its membership with understanding Mental Health & Wellbeing. A key deliverable from this initiative was the design and delivery of CPD Certified Mental Health workshops. All NFDC Members have been offered free of charge places on these NFDC workshops, and NFDC now continues to offer the courses for members on-demand. 

NFDC offers the following mental health and wellbeing training courses – all of which can be delivered online or face to face by our partners at Vector Equilibrium and Synergy Wellbeing.
