The impact of kindness on our brain is the key message at an upcoming e-clinic led by Kerry Mitchell, our Wellbeing Manager and Mental Health Trainer.


It is part of a series of online sessions we are running for free and will start at 10am on Tuesday 20th October.


The hour-long e-clinic will include six science-backed ways that being kind is good for you and others, how the kindness actually impacts the brain, and referral pathways for talking therapies.


Attendees will also look at the factors which make people feel uncomfortable starting a conversation about mental health, and some of the current research associated with World Mental Health Day which takes place across the globe in October 🌍


Kerry, our Mental Health First Aid qualified trainer, said:

“The e-clinic is part of a series being held once a month – during October we wanted to support organisations to be able to respond with kindness, and the real-life benefits associated with the way we treat others.


“This year has been a tough one, particularly for people living with mental illness and their carers. Research suggests that nearly 80% of people living with mental illness say that Covid-19 and associated lockdown has made their mental health worse.


“Post World Mental Health Day, we will tie in the theme of how kindness can act as a chemical and can further support others who are dealing with mental health.”


In addition to the webinars, Paycare Wellbeing is also extending its online offering – to complement its pre-pandemic face-to-face Mental Health First Aid training options, incorporating the new accredited online version of the full Mental Health First Aider course.
