Hear Deaf Mental Health Project in Wales

Our 'Hear Deaf Mental Health in Wales' is now in its third and last year. So far we have had 93 people on our courses in Mental Health First Aid (MHFA). A spin-off bonus of the project has been the training of 4 Trainers who now can deliver MHFA courses in Wales. We have also supported 23 Deaf people with mental health issues by signposting and enabling them to access services.
