Recent feedback from our training and consultancy work includes:

I was involved in the five week accredited peer support facilitator training course delivered by Leeds Mind… I have recently gained employment at the trust as a peer support mental health worker and the training will support this role… This has been an important process for me, building my confidence again and helping me transition into work easily and regain my trust in people’s attitudes towards me having suffered from mental health problems… I hope to be successful in my new role, grow in confidence and self belief and develop tools to support my mental health successfully and pass these on to others who experience mental distress also. I definitely feel the sessions have benefitted me as the feedback I received from my peers was constructive, positive and allows me to build on things.

Along with a number of colleagues, I attended a day long training session run by Leeds Mind to assist us with the setting up of a Peer Support Group. Every one of us found the training informative, extremely relevant and useful, and tailored to our exact requirements. The delivery of the training was first class, very interactive and gave us the opportunity to look at ourselves, what we wanted to get from the day and how we could get our group up and running. The training also covered the important aspect of coping mechanisms for each of us to enable us to deal with the pressures the role could place on us. The trainers were knowledgeable in their field, able to answer any question asked of them and were extremely approachable. I cannot recommend this training enough.
