I was involved in undertaking a wide range of duties which made placement interesting and worthwhile. Everyday seemed to have its own challenges, dilemmas and learning opportunities. A really beneficial placement which changed my stereotypical assumptions about mental health services users for life.

Feedback from People Receiving Training

Walsingham Care Homes - Vic Green

Due to the opening of a new project for adults with mild learning disabilities and mental health needs, we decided to ensure that the staff were trained in mental health awareness. I contacted Mind in Croydon and arranged for a training day at a local centre.

The day was extremely well planned and the content was exactly what we were looking for. All staff found the day very informative and educational. One member commented: It kept my interest at all times, I feel more confident now in being able to support the service users

London Fire & Emergency Planning Authority - Joanna Foster

Joanna Foster provided her comments regarding the course:

The presentation was very informative, insightful and well received. You provided the trainee advisers with a valuable insight into this important area of child behaviour. As a result, they will now be better equipped to undertake their role as advisors and in offering support to the children with whom we work.

Home Start Croydon

Mind in Croydon has been delivering training on mental heath for many years to the volunteers of Home-Start Croydon. The training that Mind delivers is invaluable to us as it provides the volunteers with a real and extremely useful insight into the field of mental health which is relative to the families they will be supporting.
