I have over 30 years experience of working in the mental health field and a deep understanding of how the field disables people with mental health problems. I provide training for people who work in the field on a variety of issues which affect people with mental health problems. You can read about some sample training by clicking here.
My approach to training is informed by a trust in people to understand even challenging material. There are a set of taboos surrounding mental health but these can be engaged with and negotiated to enable a wider, more positive understanding of the symptoms of and reasons for mental health problems. My training aims to expose and comprehend these unspoken assumptions and to move beyond them.
