9/11/17 - MENTAL HEALTH TRAINING WORKSHOP
Several members of broom tree attended the first of four mental health training sessions for the Church of England in Darlington on Thursday 9th November at St. Cuthbert’s Hall.
The training workshop was led by Reverend Colin Jay, Head of Chaplaincy Services at Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust with the aim of raising awareness of the types of severe and enduring mental illness, how these are experienced by people and the problems of stigma. The training was very relaxed, informative and achieved its objectives.
Brian Robinson, founder of broom tree says, “I felt yet another milestone in the development of broom tree was achieved last night as people listened attentively to our stories followed by insightful questions. Participants commented on the courage and frankness of broom tree members that contributed to a successful evening”.
