Man on beach illustrating finding it tough mental health support

Wednesday 7th September 2022

The RAF Association is offering free training, through three tailored online mental wellbeing courses, for non-serving members of the RAF community.

Who are the courses for?

  • All partners, parents, brothers, sisters and children (over 18) of anyone serving in the RAF
  • All RAF veterans and their families
  • Those supporting the RAF community. For example: anyone working on an RAF station (e.g. MOD civil servants and defence contractors), medical staff, civilian staff or volunteers.

The RAF Association welcome people who want to support their friends, family members and colleagues, and spot any signs that they may be struggling, as well as gaining some tips for managing their own mental wellbeing and resilience.

Where can I attend a course?

You can attend from anywhere that has access to a computer and an internet connection that will allow for video streaming as the majority of their mental wellbeing courses are being held virtually.

Participation will be in small, confidential groups.

These courses are for non-serving RAF personnel only. Serving RAF personnel are encouraged to seek help through the RAF’s Thriving At Work programme.

What are others saying about the courses?

“The course was run extremely well. It was engaging and there was plenty of opportunity to be involved in discussions about the course content. It was also a good reminder of what to do for yourself and those you interact with professionally and on a personal level.” Course Participant, Finding it Tough? September 2022
