I have volunteered at Mind Cymru for nearly two years, during which time I have enjoyed both the work experience and the lovely atmosphere with very encouraging, friendly staff.
Not only has it helped me to socialise again, but also raised my confidence level which was very low.
I have received training to become an instructor in Mental Health First Aid, and now feel able to return to work after a long period of sickness.
I was so delighted to learn that I've got the post of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Regional Coordinator assisting with the promotion, development and coordination of the MHFA programme across South Wales. I'm finally back to work after a very tough time of illness which lasted for some years
