Mental health staff given specialist training
MENTAL health professionals from across NHS Highland will attended specialist training this week.
The Decider skills training package was developed by cog- nitive behavioural therapists to improve communication about emotions and self-management between patients, family and staff.
Cognitive behavioural thera- pists Michelle Ayres and Carol Vivyan, who developed the programme, spent a week in Inverness with more than 250 staff and volunteers.
NHS Highland’s community mental health services manager, Michael Perera, said: ‘ We were delighted to welcome the trainers to NHS Highland, and the staff who attended gained a lot from the week.’
