Bespoke Mental Health was established by leading mental health clinicians, researchers and trainers. Our core mission is to improve mental health by providing high-quality, evidence-based CPD training to mental health professionals, delivered by world-leading experts in their fields. We aim to reach as many people as possible who could benefit from our training.
We offer a range of online CPD workshops and webinars for mental healthcare providers, educators, charities and individual practitioners.
Our commitment to the NHS
Bespoke Mental Health has a deeply held commitment to the NHS. We were founded with the NHS firmly in mind, with an understanding of the importance of delivering effective psychological therapies at scale. We work with Trusts to tailor the programmes we offer to meet organisational needs. We run our provision for the NHS and other public and third sector organisations, and for individual practitioners in those sectors, on a not-for-profit basis, offering discounted subscription packages and reinvesting any operating surplus from this provision into the services we provide.
We are committed to ethical practice and providing training only in interventions that have scientific support is a central part of our ethos.
We can deliver training for all mental health services across the care pathway, in ways that aim to meet the training needs of individual practitioners and teams. In addition to our open programme of events, we offer bespoke high-quality training for individual organisations.
More widely we aim to support understanding of mental health issues and how best to address them, including through offering training to the corporate sector.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your training needs.
