Community Food and Health (Scotland) has funds available to support community based mental health organisations provide training to their staff and volunteers in food, nutrition and health.
Access to a balanced, healthy diet is as important to good mental health as it is to good physical health. Experience from community groups working in the field also suggests that food is a great way to develop new skills, build confidence, a sense of belonging and wider social networks.
Constituted organisations can apply for the funding for the following courses:
- REHIS Elementary Food and Health Course (max 10 per organisation)
- RSPH Certificate in Nutrition and Health level 3 ( max 1 per organisation)
Organisations can also apply for funds to pay the costs for staff, who meet the eligibility criteria, to register with REHIS as an Elementary Food and Health tutor.
