Mental Health Professionals
Hi, my name is Carole Gibson and I am the Mental Health Development Worker at DCCS. I want to make sure that people who care for adults with poor mental health receive all of the services they need.
I ensure that all Carer Support Coordinators have guidance, information and training to enable them to support this group of Carers effectively and by working with them to deal with more complex cases.
Developing and maintaining links with mental health teams, and other agencies and organisations raises the awareness of this group of Carers, this is done by delivering presentations to highlight Carers issues and encourages the identification of "hidden Carers".
We work in partnership with TEWV adult and older persons' services to offer training and information sessions to this group of carers several times each year, as well as one-off workshops as required e.g. mindfulness taster sessions. This close partnership working has also enabled us to offer training to Carer Support Workers, which has included awareness training on drug and alcohol use, eating disorders, bi-polar disorder, psychosis related conditions and personality disorders.
If you would like more information, click here to contact us and we will be happy to help.
