The Learning and Development Team offer a range of high quality and innovative training opportunities to Penumbra staff and volunteers, as well as external organisations.

Recovery focused practice underpins our services and informs the design of our training courses, which cover areas such as recovery in practice, Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP), non-violent crisis intervention, and self harm awareness. We are not currently offering mental health first aid or mental health awareness training.

“It’s been great having a very people centred, person centred training. Really feel it gets back to a sense of working with people which sometimes gets lost in the task oriented world that we now live in”

“I have found that the training has provided me with a greater understanding of recovery. I now understand WRAP. The training was very reflective and made me think about my own wellness.”

Penumbra’s training programme is under review. Please contact us if you or your organisation has an interest in receiving training in a particular area of recovery, wellbeing or mental health. Training is available externally and can be tailored to meet your needs at a competitive price.
