Two new dates are now available for Falkirk District Association for Mental Health’s (FDAMH) Essential Listening Skills course, on Tuesday 27th July and Wednesday 28th July. Both dates are fully funded and will be delivered free to community organisations and volunteers.
The one day course, delivered via Zoom, aims to give volunteers working in the community a range of skills and resources to help them tackle challenging conversations, including people with suicidal thoughts, anxiety and other mental health concerns. It also provides tools and techniques to better manage their own self-care and set appropriate boundaries when dealing with the public.
A range of resources are also issued, to ensure that staff and volunteers have clear escalation strategies and signposting, to make sure that they can confidently refer people to the right place when further support is needed.
