Thanks to the Big Lottery, BSMHD are able to leave a legacy in Wales for after our Hear Deaf MH Wales project ends in 2019.
This is fantastic news, as Mental Health services for deaf people are not very accessible. Early intervention is so important in getting deaf people help early before they get worse.
This means quicker recovery. This is what makes the MHFA courses so valuable! They teach us how to spot the signs that someone is not coping with life or is unwell.
What can we do? We learn some skills and awareness of the kinds of support people need. We are so proud to have 4 accredited Deaf MHFA (Wales) trainers to make this valuable course accessible to our deaf community in Wales- aiding positive mental health!
