Mental Health & Wellbeing Think Family Project (virtual training)

16 Sep

Trainers: Andrea Kearns & Adele Boyd

Following the success of CiNI’s Think Family training delivered in 2018 and 2019, participants identified the need for a supporting module to complement the learning on The Family Model sessions.

In response to this we are delighted to be offering training in Understanding Mental Ill health and Support Service Pathways throughout September 2020.

You do not require prior training or knowledge of The Think Family Model to attend this course.

This online training is particularly suitable for those working with / supporting families.

The module learning aims to:

• Increase understanding of mental health and the most common mental illnesses

• Increase understanding of the impact that mental ill health can have on a person’s own well-being and the effect this can have on parenting and on family relationships.

• Enhance participant confidence to offer help, support and sign-posting to people diagnosed with mental illness

• Overview of recovery and how you might support people through their own recovery journey including the importance of working across services using The Think Family Model.

• Overview of service provision, treatment options and access for all members of the family unit.

This Zoom session will have breaks throughout the day.
