Virtual Training Session for Workplaces

2013-03-21 - Virtual Training ImageA ‘virtual training session’ took place between NHS Western Isles, NHS Highland and NHS Grampian on 15th March offering employers in these areas the opportunity to attend Mentally Healthy Workplace training.

NHS Highland and NHS Grampian had previously been unable to offer this training and following discussions between Boards, it was suggested to pilot a session using jabber running the training from NHS Western Isles and linking up with six participants in Inverness and four in Aberdeen.

Facilitators were present in all areas to ensure the training ran smoothly and after a few initial teething problems, the session went well with all areas participating and feeling included in the training. Feedback was positive and future sessions are now being being planned as a result.
