Have you heard?

Norton Housing and Support now provides training services!

We have over 35 years’ experience of supporting people with mental health needs and we are really excited about expanding our reach into the wider community and providing a range of training courses to help raise awareness of mental health.

Everyone has mental health, just as everyone has physical health, similarly many people will experience poor mental health as they will physical health – in fact it is estimated that at any one time 1 in 4 people will experience mental health issues.

Our training courses provide you and your employees with the space and opportunity to talk about mental health in a safe setting. We enable all attendees to come away with the tools and knowledge to support their own mental health as well as that of their colleagues, family and friends.
