Mental Fitness Workshops on 5th and 12th May in evening


Just a reminder that I am running two Mental Fitness Workshops (online via Collaborate) in May 2021. Details of workshop below.

Tickets are still available.

I’m not sure I’ll be running many more of these until later in Semester 2, so if you want to attend one, now is the time!

Hope to see you online where we can talk about one trains their mind!

Workshop Details

What is it?

A 90-minute workshop with me (Dr Gareth Furber from Health, Counselling and Disability Services) in which I will give you a framework for thinking about how to maintain, improve or repair your mental health. 


Who is it for?

Anyone who is interested in improving or protecting their mental health.

Anyone working on their physical fitness who’d like to know how similar principles apply to mental fitness.

Anyone interested in how to train the mind.

Anyone working in a high pressure or high stress setting and wants tools for understanding how to be more resilient.

Anyone in a helping profession that wants a model not only for their own mental health but to assist others in theirs.


What I think you’ll get out of it

A modern definition of mental health and mental fitness.

An understanding of mental fitness and how people go about building it.

An understanding of why it might be important for you to build mental fitness.

An understanding of what else might be required in one’s life if they are training their mind.

An experience of different mental fitness ‘workouts’.

An appreciation of the fact that mental fitness can be built without necessarily investing a huge amount of time or effort.


What is involved in the session?

We’ve packed a lot of content into the 90 minutes, so expect it to be fast-paced.

The workshops will be delivered online via Collaborate. 

There are individual reflection exercises throughout the workshop that you’ll be invited to do and you’ll be provided a worksheet to assist with this. Some sharing of your experiences will also be possible during the session (in the group chat).  


Can you get Horizon points?

Yep – 1.5 (note that Horizon is using a new point scheme, so that is why the points are lower than previous) 


That sounds great but I can’t attend

You might find the recently updated ‘Introduction to Mental Fitness‘ handout to be useful, which covers a lot of the same territory as the workshop.
