Journeys is a specialist charity providing information, advice and guidance to people affected by depression and to organisations where they live and work.We began developing our own specialist training programmes in 2005, following an award of European ESF funding aimed at promoting mental health in employment. Between 2005 and 2007 we developed, piloted and evaluated our award-winning "Depression Busting" programme.In 2007, we were the first organisation in Wales to deliver Mental Health First Aid, and have since emerged as the leading provider of this course in Wales.

Advantages of studying here

Journeys trainers have a depth of specialist knowledge about mental health that is seldom available from mainstream training providers. This is evident from the high feedback ratings that we receive from course participants. For example: “One of our staff members attended a course with you recently which she found was really helpful – and hasn’t stopped enthusing about it! Please could you send me more information and costs etc.” (Learning Quality Officer – Cardiff)And:“The patient I referred to the course found it extremely valuable. She has gained a lot of useful ideas about managing her long-term depressive illness. I would definitely recommend it to other patients” – Dr Ian Hughes, Head of Adult Psychology, Cardiff & Vale Mental Health TrustOr from someone affected by depression:“This course has given me my life back – I’ve got the tools to bring myself back up when I go down” (Depression Busting™ course participant)
