Hi everyone,

Please find links below following the live chat for mental health trusts that took place on last Thursday (7th May):

Many thanks to Ros Kellock at Tees Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust, Japleen Kaur at Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, and Martina Mullin O’Hare at Belfast Health and Social Care Trust for sharing with us these useful materials

@Vy Tran

Testing the site too.

We are not in a mental health setting, however, an organisation has been in contact about giving training to our volunteers and volunteer service team on Psychological First Aid (PFA ), to give ideas and teach skills to volunteers and the service team when dealing with peers, colleagues and visitors to the trust, who will have been affected by the coronavirus.

@Patricia HuntAh, thanks Pat! I think we shared some information about this course on Connect before. Have your volunteers attended the course? Did they find them useful?
