A CHoice of FREE Training For The Jewish Community

Project Lily’s mental health training has never been needed more. That’s why, in addition to training our organisational partners, we offer a choice of FREE training sessions to individuals.

As a Project Lily trainee you’ll likely come into contact with numerous friends, family, clients, and colleagues every week, many of whom are functioning normally on the outside but inside they’re starting to fall apart.

As our Clinical Director, Jonathan Dove puts it:

The mental health landscape is darker than ever. Over 80% of adults experienced symptoms of poor mental health during the Covid pandemic. Now, the effects of the cost-of-living crisis combined with the terrible situation in Israel and the shocking rise in UK antisemitism mean that people need support more than ever. Rising stress is a key driver of mental illness and the NHS is simply overwhelmed with waiting times – in some case approaching 12 months. The light shone by Project Lily enabling early mental health interventions has never been more urgently needed.

The courses we currently offer are as follows:

  • Top Line Introduction to Adult Mental Health: 90 Minutes
  • In-depth Introduction to Adult Mental Health: 3 Hours
  • Self-Care and Stress Management: 90 Minutes

Details of course content can be found by clicking the button below and selecting the relevant course.

Our maxim is:

“Everyone stumbles sometimes. We’re there so they don’t fall.”
By signing up for one of our robust training courses, you will not only be able to identify and respond to mental health issues you experience yourself but will also become equipped to support many other people who may need your help.

Courses are delivered over Zoom with two options:

Top Line Introduction to Mental Health
A shorter 90 minute course covering:

  • What is mental health
  • Vulnerability and protective factors
  • Stress vulnerability and coping model
  • Incidence of mental health conditions
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Self-care

In-depth Introduction to Mental Health
A longer 3 hour course covering those shown left in more detail, plus:

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Panic episodes
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • The Care Pathway

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. Our 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.
