For over a decade Choices have been researching, developing and supplying a wide range of powerful and effective Mental Health Educational and Training resources. Our fantastic range is used by mental health professionals, training companies, mental health charities, employers and thousands of individuals around the world, to help their clients/patients to understand and use the coping techniques to achieve better control over their condition.
The benefits of using our interactive infogroaphic boards include:
- The removal of complexity
- Simplified step by step process
- Increased discussion and engagement
Our training packs have undergone a two year study by a university who identified them as a most effective method of training for information retention and focus.
For example, “Anxiety”
Our foundation educational awareness/training session “Understanding Anxiety and the Unconscious Mind” is designed to be delivered in a half day session to groups of up to 24 people at a time.
The objective is to explain various vital points which clarify:
- Where anxiety comes from
- Why it affects people
- How it affects people
- How the unconscious mind triggers anxiety
- How the unconscious mind controls us
Once you have an understanding of the above it is effortless to teach our 4 simple coping techniques which will reduce anxiety and stress very quickly. A large number of people have stated an immediate change in their attitude during the session.
The coping techniques are very straightforward and enable people to:
- Separate themselves from the condition
- Turn negative thoughts into positive thoughts
- Block out anxiety and panic attacks
- Build a positive attitude
- Improve self-esteem and belief
- Identify realistic improvement goals
- Stop all arguments within the family
These coping techniques have already improved the lives of thousands of individuals and their families.
At the end of the session everyone receives an information pack with everything discussed in the session to take away. This enables all the materials to be used at home. This will educate other family members and friends, thus creating a much larger informed network group.
“Understanding Anxiety and the Unconscious Mind” training sessions have been run for staff in a number of organisations such as Crown Prosecution Services Wales, Housing Associations and other large companies.
Apart from the rapid improvement in their staff by reducing their anxiety and stress it has improved the atmosphere in the workplace. There has also been a noticeable improvement in productivity and a massive reduction in absenteeism.
Although these are on the “Understanding Anxiety and the Unconscious Mind”, which is the pathway and foundation of our training system Choices have a wide range of specialist information packs, training courses and educational infographic boards on a wide range of subjects which include:
Anger, Bipolar and Mood Scale, Confidence Building, Depression and specific resources for schools on bullying and young carers.
