Rehab: Supporting Clients with their mental health – Discover Wellbeing
20 April 2023, 10am to 11am (Please note: Date and time changed from 9 May 2023, 9am to 10am)
Are you a rehab worker or manager and struggle to support your clients mental health needs?
Retina UK recently launched Discover Wellbeing, to help those living with sight loss develop an awareness of emotional wellbeing and practical skills to adapt to life’s ups and downs. The Discover Wellbeing tool is free to use and Denise Rawden of Retina UK will talk about how this tool could be applied to your rehab interventions and improve outcomes for your clients.
The course has been shaped by the lived experiences of people affected by sight loss and has been tested for accessibility.
Benefits of Rehab apprenticeships – for decision makers
20 June, 10am to 11am (Note: Date and time changed from 11 July, 9am to 10am)
This session will focus on the benefits of using the apprenticeship scheme to employ and train staff to deliver a rehab function within local organisations.
Following on from our successful session delivered to front line staff, this event is suitable for decision makers and budget holders within organisations. The purpose of the event is to help you decide if this is something you are interested in pursuing.
The session will be delivered by Sarah French, CEO at Vision and Hearing Support who has made good use of the scheme and Andrew Dodgson from Vision Rehabilitation Training who can provide information and support to find out more.
