Quality education is a way of valuing your workforce and your client group, be they professional clinicians or peer support volunteers.  I will work with your organisation or community group tailoring content and delivery to best meet the needs of all participants.

 

For some, a small informal group would work well, for example a support group for parents or teachers managing challenging behaviours. You may prefer a structured presentation for staff professional development, or your community may be looking for a friendly interactive, presentation in layman's language to better understand the mental health impact of local issues like supporting each other through drought, the aftermath of Covid 19, or suicidal behavour.  

 

Below are examples of just a few organisations I have worked with over the years.

Salvation Army, Mental Health Education Resource Centre, Ara, CDHB, Darfield Baptist Church, Oxford Community Trust, Kaikoura Networkers Group, Otago University, Odyssey House, Nova Trust, City Mission
