I met a lovely group of people from Rochdale Connections Trust this week, performing a variety of roles within the organisation which was interesting to hear about. Everyone fully participated in the day and had a lot of information and experience to share with their colleagues in the area of behaviours considered challenging, trauma, ACEs and related mental health issues. I am very grateful to have been invited to speak with RCT and hope our paths cross once again!
This was my first visit to Birmingham - ever - and overall a very positive one. The venue staff at J L Kare couldn't have been more helpful prior to and on the day. A lovely group of people attended and what made the day beneficial was the input from many of the attendees throughout, learning from each other and sharing knowledge.
A first at these events was the demo session of Laughter Yoga provided in the afternoon by practitioner "Merrie Maggie" which everyone was able to participate in. I am sure this was appreciated by all and offered insight into another form of support for wellbeing. Many thanks to everyone.
