Training opportunities: community-based mental health organisations

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.

For full details of this offer and an application form are available from the Current Work section or contact us.
