Wendy - PR Marketing and Communications volunteer email@example.com 0207 700 3938
My volunteering role is in PR, marketing and communications.
I enjoy using my people skills in networking, going out into the community and promoting the Stress Project's fabulous work at events such as the Carer's week and Mental Health week. I have an interest in health care development and the shaping of services in Islington, I attend meetings such as Healthwatch and patient participation groups. I particularly value the Stress Project's ethos and non-stigmasing approach offering an holistic model of care which addresses both mental health and physical health.
I have also completed Mental Health First Aid course both for adults and young people and I am a Mental Health Champion. I've also trained in Mindfulness and I find it a very effective tool for managing my own conditions and like to impart this knowledge with others.
I am qualified in Indian head massage and holistic (Swedish) massage and was trained at the Stress Project in 2006. I was fortunate that the training was fully funded by the European Social Fund. I love this therapeutic work, but am only able do it occasionally as I manage long term health conditions.
Because of my chronic pain, this led to depression, so I have a good understanding of the psychological impact on physical health.
I am at Stress Project on Tuesday and Thursday.
