Since 2003, MOAT: Mental Health has been providing mental health services for a range of organisations, including those working with young people in care. This includes interactive mental health education programs.
Mental Health is an area that appears to be confusing and difficult for people to develop basic knowledge of.
It doesn’t have to be this way – The concept of Mental Health can be presented in a format that is both easy to understand and demystifying.
Bryan Jeffrey is a Registered Psychiatric Nurse, and since 1995 has been employed in a range of senior clinical positions in Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and Adult Mental Health in Scotland, and latterly in Melbourne, Australia.
Throughout his career, Bryan saw gaps in mental health literacy, in people who were hungry for knowledge, and decided to focus the attention of MOAT: Mental Health Services on meeting these needs.
Ranging from delivering keynote addresses at national conferences, to providing workshops for small groups of staff and carers – Bryan’s passion is in mental health training.
