DoNoHarm Training


The words we use matter.

It’s everybody’s responsibility to ensure they communicate in a way that is healing, rather than harmful, especially when discussing sensitive topics like mental health.

Join our upcoming training to learn how to communicate appropriately, and inclusively about mental health conditions, traumatic experiences, suicide, self-harm and disordered eating.

Whether you are telling your own story, or communicating about mental health concerns, this session will equip you to share and hear stories safely.

This workshop is built off the DoNoHarm framework© by Mental Illness Education ACT (MIEACT), a best-practice approach to communication about mental health. A qualified MIEACT facilitator will deliver it in partnership with a lived experience educator.
