It may almost be Christmas but Spinal Home Help hasn’t slowed down one bit – we’re working hard as ever to fill the end of the year with as many programs and events for our clients, volunteers and peer mentors as we can.
Earlier this year, SHH Peer Mentors consolidated their expertise in counselling, interpersonal relationships and emotional intelligence by undertaking a one day life-coaching seminar from Inspyr. It was a success, with each of the attendees getting something important out of the day. SHH is dedicated to providing the best training for our mentors as is available and provided a second counselling and communications course over two days in November.
Working with the Australian College of Community Services, SHH Peer Mentors brushed up on their existing skill set and learned many new techniques for providing effective, friendly and sensitive support for our clients as they work with individuals transitioning from hospital to home. We even found some time during the session to meditate and reflect on what we’d learned!
On the social side of things, earlier this month several of our clients and mentors headed up to Mt Tamborine for some relaxation, wine tasting and a fantastic lunch at the Fortitude Brewery. Our mentors and clients spent the day out and about, eating great food, enjoying the company and the weather. We look forward to many such events in the future.
