Mental Wellbeing update for Pharmacists: Simulation
A free, one-day, simulation-based course focusing on promoting mental health and wellbeing in patients seen by community pharmacists. The course aims to be a high-fidelity, immersive session to develop confidence and skills in recognising mental distress and promoting wellbeing, help patients reduce their risks of developing mental illness, and understand related issues such as self-harm, stress, and sleep problems. The course is specifically for pharmacists working in primary care. You will increase skills and confidence in promoting well-being for individuals with long-term mental health conditions, co-morbid mental and physical health issues, and those generally experiencing mental distress for any reason.
The programme aims to provide added value by targeting and supporting the community pharmacy group within the primary care workforce. This training is open to Pharmacists in London, Surrey, Sussex, and Kent and funded by Health Education England’
