Effective Practitioner Network
Network with other professionals trained by The Mental Health Toolkit
If you have benefited from our training and wish to continue learning from both our trainers and fellow practitioners, this network could be for you.
The Effective Practitioner Network is designed to provide you with the continued support needed to put the skills and knowledge you have learnt into practice.
What do you get as a member?
By joining the network, you will:
- Receive regular news bulletins
- Have the opportunity to attend exclusive events
- Be invited to take part in Mastering Skills reflective practice sessions
You will connect with a growing group of practitioners, using the Emotional Needs and Resources approach to support recovery and wellbeing across diverse sectors.
What are Mastering Skills sessions?
The first session is free, with further sessions costing just £40 per person.
You’ll look at how you are using what you’ve learned in your work, talk about the techniques you are using, and discuss any challenges you face with like-minded people.
These facilitated sessions will be attended by other professionals from a variety of organisations who have also completed Supporting Mental Health or The Comprehensive Toolkit. This gives you the opportunity to reflect together on the knowledge and skills you’ve gained, and refresh your understanding. Book your Mastering Skills session below.
Why has the Network been created?
After completing their training with The Mental Health Toolkit, we often find that attendees express a desire to continue their learning and to stay connected with one another.
The Effective Practitioner Network provides the opportunity to do just this. Suffolk Mind – our parent organisation – sees our new network as another essential step towards meeting our mission “to make Suffolk the best place in the world to talk about and take care of mental health”.
Who is the Network for?
Not yet attended either of these courses?
Don’t worry, as soon as you complete Supporting Mental Health or The Comprehensive Toolkit in the future, you will be invited to join the network, and given a code to use on the booking form below.
Where will events take place?
The networking events and Mastering Skills reflective practice sessions will mainly be held online, to be more accessible to our members. Some events will be face to face, or across locations in Suffolk.
How do I join the Effective Practitioner Network?
Joining the network will give you the opportunity to attend exclusive events, receive regular newsletter updates and take part in Mastering Skills reflective practice sessions.
We invite you to join the network as a founding member with no current additional cost, to thank you for investing in our training. Please get in touch with us to join.
Come to our next Mastering Skills session
Mastering Skills is a reflective practice session, to help you go beyond the training you have received as part of Supporting Mental Health or The Comprehensive Toolkit.
You will look at how you are using your learning from this course in your work, and talk about the techniques you are using successfully and any challenges you face.
- How you are using your skills in your work?
- What more could you be using?
- Discuss skills from the training that you are using successfully and any challenges you are facing.
- The sessions will be attended by other professionals from a variety of organisations who have completed the course. This gives you the opportunity to reflect together on the knowledge and skills you have learnt.
Mastering Skills sessions are designed to support your professional development. By increasing your confidence, and using the skills learned from Supporting Mental Health or The Comprehensive Toolkit, you will effectively support those you work with (both colleagues and clients), who are facing mental health challenges.

Did you know?
When you book training with The Mental Health Toolkit, not only are you getting high quality and practical mental health training, you’re also directly supporting people living with mental health challenges to get support.
We reinvest back into Suffolk Mind’s services, to support those who need our help.
You directly contribute to making Suffolk the best place in the world for talking about and taking care of mental health, by investing in our training courses and by practising what you learn with us.
It’s so valuable to hear what other businesses are doing to support their employees and I’m looking forward to seeing how the network develops.
It was such a great evening getting to meet some lovely people from organisations across Suffolk. I’m looking forward to many more opportunities to work with the wonderful people at The Mental Health Toolkit.
