Dr AJ has been brushing up on his business skills this week, with some funded courses courtesy of Wenta. Particularly loving this graphic on social networking. Image courtesy of the ridiculously talented John Atkinson.
This week saw another two-day Adult Mental Health First Aid course run in Milton Keynes – this time at the fantastic charity Hazard Alley. It was a real privilege to teach such an enthusiastic group – and they were a talented bunch, as this image to illustrate the thoughts and feelings behind anxiety shows.
Brilliant conference attended by Dr AJ Yates today. Mental Health through the Lifespan, hosted by the University of Surrey, saw speakers from a wide range of backgrounds giving their views on the latest findings on different aspects of mental health from childbirth through to old age. It was wonderful to hear from such a variety of people – including service users describing their lived experience of mental health and recovery. To see the full programme, click here.

Just like physical first aid, updating skills and knowledge allows people to perform this vital role confidently and safely.” More information is available on the MHFA England website.
