Mental Health Awareness
This session is facilitated by Mandy Haines. Mandy qualified as a mental health nurse in 1981, going to work with older people and those with dementia. In 2012 Mandy joined the Cognitive Disorders Service at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery looking after those with young onset and rare dementias.
Mandy learnt extensively from talking to patients and carers in this role, it has given her great insight into the challenges of living with many types of dementia.
The outcomes of the Mental Health Awareness session are:
- To develop an understanding of mental illness and the symptoms
- To reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness
- Awareness that dementia and mental illness can co-exist
- To understand and promote good mental health in the workplace
