Congratulations to Gellinudd’s first cohort of trained Peer Mentors!

1

You may have heard that Hafal’s groundbreaking Gellinudd Recovery Centre was recently opened by Health Minister Vaughan Gething AM.

The new in-patient Centre is staffed by both registered mental health nurses and registered general nurses, and is supported by physiotherapy, psychological therapy, occupational therapy and other services, as well as a psychiatrist. Most importantly, it is staffed by Peer Mentors who have personal experience of mental illness.

Today Gellinudd’s first cohort of Peer Mentors received certificates from Hafal’s Chief Executive Alun Thomas for completing their Peer Mentoring training, which was developed and delivered by trainers Kevin Fisher and Dave Smith.

Alun congratulated the Gellinudd Peer Mentors on their achievement – and welcomed their unique input into what will be an empowering and recovery-focused service.
