What’s with all the training? Well, in addition to yourself, it’s likely you spend meaningful time with friends, family, or colleagues every week. Research shows that some of these people, though functioning normally on the outside, will be really struggling on the inside. Our training provides the knowledge and skills needed to respond, so you can prevent things escalating and literally change lives.

The wellbeing landscape is darker than ever due to the aftermath of Covid, the cost-of-living crisis, the terrible situation in Israel and the shocking rise in UK antisemitism.

Rising stress is a key driver of mental illness and the NHS is simply overwhelmed with record waiting times. Our work promoting wellbeing and enabling early mental health interventions has never been more urgently needed.

We're very proud of our training


Here are just some of the reasons we’re so proud of the training we offer:


  • Rather than using generic ‘trainers’, our courses are delivered by our Clinical Director, Jonathan Dove (BSc, MA (Psychotherapy), Registered Member MBACP, Member EMDR UK) a leading and highly respected Mental Health professional with almost 30 years’ experience.


  • Project Lily is a Jewish charity, which means we are sensitive to the many religious and cultural issues that can impact on people’s daily lives.


  • As well as being filled with essential content, the course is engaging, interactive and has consistently received exceptional feedback from past participants.


  • As well as training individuals, we can also provide courses for organisations. Such training is not ‘one size fits all’. Rather, we consult with each organisation to tailor each course to their needs.
I’ve taken part in many courses. The Project Lily mental health training stood head and shoulders above all of them. Its content and style of presentation were exactly what we needed – I can already see the impact of the training.
