As an operation Police Officer and a supervisor, my team and I often attend incidents relating to mental health crisis, in the demanding workplace staff are also facing situations of personal crisis which as supervisors we have to manage and support which is difficult with little or no formal training in this complex area.
I was quietly confident I knew and understood enough to equip me to do a good job, however, after this training event I knew so much more and quickly admitted I didn’t know as much as I thought I had. The training presentations, lived in experiences shared, literature and signposting to information was top class. This was a really empowering event and I would highly recommend anyone who has the opportunity to attend one of these events to engage with it. You will come away wiser and confident to look at and deal with any situation in a far more proficient manner.
Thank you to the team, with Mental health such a high profile focus it’s good to know that there are organisations out there that can help steer us towards better knowledge and understanding
