• Best Training Course Ever! Thank YOU!

    Thank you to the 22 health professionals who attended the Living With Bipolar Workshop in Maistone, Kent yesterday. We discussed so many topics, from the complexities of medicating, to strategies for helping sufferers during the highs and lows.

    It seems that hearing my personal story, and listening to my first-hand experience of the healthcare system, as a bipolar sufferer really struck a chord, and was a catalyst for some powerful debate.

    I often address Occupational Therapists, Doctors, Psychiatrists and Social Workers, but yesterday, for the first time, I was thrilled to welcome a number of people who either suffer from the disorder or have close family members who are bipolar. Their involvement brought new insight to the group and their contribution introduced a different dimension - well done for being brave enough to come along and speak to the group!

    I've been overhwelmed by the response to the programme. Feedback like: 'Inspiring....Refreshing to attend a course run by people 'in the know' rather than being policy driven,' 'A fascinating insight into the world of bipolar from a family who have truly experienced it,' ' If only all training courses were like this!' and 'This is the best training course I have ever attended.'

    What makes this programme so inspiring?...I think it's unique to have the chance to speak not only to me, as a sufferer, but also to my two sisters, who tell THEIR version of my bipolar journey. It this insight into the pressure placed on whole family units that seems to be missing from the welfare system, and is so needed by healthcare professionals.

    Next workshop: Whitstable, December 10. Contact me for more @lynnhodges6.
