Kaleidoscopic UK now has five qualified Mental Health First Aiders
We are delighted to announce that during April and May, 5 of our amazing volunteers undertook the training to become qualified Mental Health first aiders thanks to Citizens Advice, Wokingham and Mental Health England.
This course was a great opportunity to learn the best way for us to all effectively support our clients as well as our volunteers through all mental health needs. The course was trauma informed, packed with the latest research, knowledge and embedded with practical tools that have already been put into practise by most.
As survivors at different stages of healing it is vital that we look after our own mental health as well as supporting our clients, the course emphasised how we can use best practice to achieve this. Thankfully Kaleidoscopic UK focus on being trauma informed, on well being and self-care which was reinforced by the course. It is so important we all know it is ok not to be ok and that you are not alone, there is so much support available.
Well done all, we are very proud of you!
