We ask delegates on our courses what they have found useful and why.

Here are some of the responses from the Dual diagnosis (two day) course.

  • I found the bond, goal and exploring the brain itself particularly interesting and useful. Very thorough, positively intensive and very inspiring course.
    Michelle Healy, Managing Director - Keystones Mental Health Support Services - Nov 2016
  • Most interesting course I have ever been on… turned theories & beliefs upside down - was so much wider than 'Dual Diagnosis' - puts mental health, addiction & dependency into context of the real world rather than as isolated conditions.
    Sue Hoggett - Taunton Association for the Homeless
  • Understanding the impact of mental illness and substance misuse is "greater than sum of parts", exploring the difficulties of working with this group. Useful understanding of Dual Diagnosis, significance of life course and age of onset of use.
    Liz Drake - Ceredigion Social Services Substance Misuse Team
  • We were all utterly blown away by the course, it was so incredibly interesting and thought provoking. Just this morning with a client, we have used some of the techniques taught to us on the course. I hope this course will run again as I would love to send our new starters along when they join us.
  • Lots of information backed up by personal experience and examples. Some simple exercises to engage and work with dual diagnosis clients. Well presented with a good balance of humour.
  • Everything! One of the best training sessions I have ever attended. Looking forward to putting strategies and ideas into practice and I am inspired to do further research. Very inspirational and energising.
  • Information about drugs/ alcohol and MH was all relevant and ‘fitted’ together for me to take back to our service. I learnt a lot over these two days; treatment and dual diagnosis and personality disorders were all really helpful. Very full agenda with lots to absorb. Phil quite obviously ‘knows his stuff’ and was able to respond to any questions thrown at him.
