We had struggled to find a Mental Health First Aid course in the Highlands and took the decision to host an course ourselves opening up places to the local community and businesses. Organisations generally have first aiders trained to deal with physical issues but don’t always consider how to support mental health issues that can affect our work colleagues, friends and family.
Our aim was to increase awareness of Mental Health and the number of Mental Health First Aiders who can provide first line assistance. The SMHFA course delivered by Gwen Robertson provides great insight, new skills and confidence to deal with sensitive situations and queries. We are also pleased that other companies have now been in contact with a view to offering courses in the future.
I'm passionate about creating content that helps to tell your brand story to meet your marketing needs. I help to identify your objectives, goals, target personas and work collaboratively to build a content marketing strategy to achieve the best outcomes for your business.
I'm also the chief storyteller at the largest cancer support charity in the north-east of Scotland, Orkney and Shetland, CLAN Cancer Support. We help people live with and beyond their or their loved one's cancer diagnosis and improve the quality of life for all those who turn to us for support.
CLAN is a shining light of hope for people, and their families, affected by cancer. Over 35 years CLAN’s services have grown significantly to address the psychological and social impact of cancer, including counselling, emotional and wellbeing services aim at reducing stress and pain, across all of north-east Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland. CLAN supports over 2,500 people every year across 13 community locations.
With over 20,000 people living with cancer across the region, CLAN’s support services are more vital than ever.
