Staff and MIND make successful mental health training day

Mental health training day 080915

More than 25 ambulance staff took part in a successful mental health training day in Luton last week.

The training, held on Tuesday (8th September) at Luton Fire station was provided by colleagues from the Trust, Bedfordshire Police and the Mental Health and Wellbeing service provided by East London Foundation Trust (ELFT).

The day included three interactive scenarios which reflected live incidents each agency has been involved with.

Along with our staff, who are involved in the care of patients with mental health, two observers from the Trust User Group and a representative from MIND attended.

Clinical Manager Lewis, who spoke at the training day, said: “We need these training days to become a regular occurrence to facilitate face to face multi-agency training days. This will allow us to identify and resolve the challenges we face in the provision for mental health patients to ensure they receive the right treatment in the right place in a timely manner.”

Keep an eye on Need to Know for details of future mental health training days.
