Grief and Bereavement Workshop
Did you know we still have spaces on our upcoming course dates? This workshop aim to help you understand some of the processes involved with grief, seek to dispel some of the misunderstandings surrounding communicating with the bereaved and will describe some of the ways to sensitively approach conversations to establish trust.
Previous attendees have described the course as “A really useful opportunity to gain more insight and reflect on grief and bereavement, as well as practical ways to offer support” and “Whilst a challenging topic, it need to be discussed! Good pointers taken away to support those difficult conversations” so why not book your place today?
Alcohol Awareness Week
Alcohol Awareness Week 2020 will take place from the 16th to the 22nd November on the theme of Alcohol and Mental Health. In a year of extraordinary change and uncertainty, it offers us a chance to think about the ways in which we may sometimes use alcohol to help us cope when we are feeling low, anxious, stressed or worried. It also offers opportunities to highlight some of the more serious mental health problems that can go hand in hand with heavy drinking.
