Why should you invest in this training?

Statistics show that a significant proportion of any customer group are likely to be experiencing poor mental health and this can make them vulnerable to misunderstanding information and making the wrong decisions. It is therefore essential to the reputation and success of any business that you can offer high standards of service to those customers. 
Our training will equip those working in Customer Service roles with the knowledge and skills to be able to identify when someone is experiencing mental health issues and to adapt their approach accordingly.

  • Customer Service Advisors
