Come and book onto our next carer’s workshop taking place on October 27

‘Understanding and supporting someone with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)’ will be running from 10am-12.30pm on Thursday October 27th and is provided to the family, friends and carers of our service users who are currently under the care of our Oxfordshire Mental Health services.

Places are free but limited so make sure you email Di Hilson, the Trust’s Carers Lead, if you are interested in taking part-, giving your name, number and the course you would like to attend.

Di says: “This workshop aims to explore the impact of trauma on the brain and body and how this can lead to PTSD.”

The workshop facilitators, Laura Wade and Jessica Hilton (clinical psychologists), will help you to understand and manage the symptoms of PTSD, the impact it has on families, as well as talk through helpful guidelines for those supporting loved ones.
