Community Management Mental Health Training Programme
The role of the Community Manager can seem limitless and the internal and external demands can be overwhelming. Managing online communities presents significant challenges that require a confident set of supportive peer skills and Community Managers also need to know about the relevant professional resources available to them should they need to refer people onwards for support. That’s why Safe In Our World has developed this course, in conjunction with Mind Fitness, that will provide the knowledge, confidence and practical skills for delegates to be able to effectively set boundaries, provide non-clinical Mental Health Support and know how to take care of their own, and their community’s wellbeing.
The programme has been funded entirely by the community of Jingle Jam 2020 and is designed to empower community managers, or anyone with a consumer facing role within the videogames industry, with knowledge, insight and best practice guidelines
The courses consist of a total of 13 hours of training which will take place over a 3-week period and ALL parts of the course are compulsory. There will be 4 sessions of 2 hours focusing on Mental Health First Aid and 2 sessions of 2.5 hours of Community Manager specific training. When you have completed the entire course you will receive a Safe in Our World Mental Health First Aid certificate.

Mental Health Training: 10th, 13th, 17th & 20th – 2pm-4pm BST
