Sunderland-based Penshaw View – a training provider and health and safety business – is building Mental Health Awareness into all of its current and future apprenticeship courses, in a bid to support its trainees – many of them young people – to spot the signs of mental illness and manage their own wellbeing.

The move means that more than 300 people enrolled on training courses with the firm – which moved into The Beam in Riverside Sunderland at the end of last year – will have the option to take part in virtual training, which includes a number of assessments and reviews, to help them understand the impact of poor mental health, explore the early signs of illness and put in place intervention if they feel
they are beginning to experience issues.

Penshaw View is fully funding the cost of the programme, meaning there will be no fee for learners or their employers, and if they pass, at the end of the training, they will receive a nationally accredited certificate in Introduction to Mental Health Awareness from Highfield Qualifications.
