Online vs. Face to Face
One of the reasons I don’t blog as much as I would like to is that I often don’t know where to start. Then when I do – I don’t know where to stop. For someone who used to write abstracts for a living I am surprisingly bad at concise. Last night is a caseContinue reading “Online vs. Face to Face”

Happy Birthday Sarah Long Mental Health & Wellbeing
So about a year ago this week I ran my first freelance Mental Health First Aid course in Halifax and started my self-employed journey with the wobbly legs of a baby giraffe.

Mental Health Awareness – A good thing?
I’ve been observing a few conversations recently about whether the rise of Mental Health Awareness campaigns and training are a good thing. It’s interesting and a bit puzzling to me, so I’ve been giving it some thought. I think the crux of the argument for many is that what is needed most is more /Continue reading “Mental Health Awareness – A good thing?”
