Mental Health First Aid

It has been a while since my role in the reasearch as the co-ordinator came to an end.

I am pleased to say that Derby Adult Learning still has a welbeing programme and Mental Health First Aid continues to grow.

There is more to be done to support this area but we are pushing ahead. Thanks to the project I feel one step closer to mental health being taken to the next level of awareness.  

Blue Sky Afternoon Tea

Today, we had our monthly Afternoon Tea drop in. We are very fortunate at the Rycote centre that we have a cafe area that we can use as it is a teaching cafe so free sometimes. The second Monday in every month is our time to talk about the research offer to anyone who is interested, in a warm and welcoming environment, very Community learning.

I thought it would be a nice idea to capture how people felt about community learning on World Mental Health day. Some really nice conversation was captured in speach bubbles, from newcomers, learners, volunteers and tutors.

We are created equal, but some are more equal than others.

This is my first blog ever so please be patient with me. I have been a tutor on Blue Sly for the past 15 months as well as teaching and assessing in apprenticeships. I have a diverse working background. I became very ill with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ ME, a very under researched and unsupported condition.
