Dementia & Mental Health Awareness
Diversity Living Services will be hosting an interactive and informative Workshop raising awareness of Dementia & Mental Health.
The aim of our Dementia & Mental Health Awareness workshop is designed to increase your knowledge and assist you in gaining a wider understanding of the issues that may surround Dementia and Mental Health.
The workshop will also discuss the problems in relation to stigmas placed on those suffering from mental health and provide information on how to access the range of support that is available nationally and locally.
We will be focusing on the following topics:
· What is Dementia?
· Its causes, thoughts on managing behaviours, and ideas on how to engage and stimulate people living with dementia
· The signs and symptoms of dementia
· How dementia affects behaviour, the senses and communication
· How to build positive relationships with people affected by dementia using increased knowledge, empathy and practical skills.
· How to support people with mental health issues
· Defining mental health
· Looking after your own mental health
· Identifying the discrimination surrounding mental health
· How to access mental health services
· Recognising warning signs
· Key issues impacting mental health and well-being
