We offer training to clinicians working in Older Adult Mental Health (OAMH) and are back running our popular whole day of training in this area now in a COVID safe environment.

As we are aware of the aging population, this training is relevant not only to those working in OAMH but any health professional working in rehabilitation.

Our calendar fills quickly so if you or your would like to express interest in a session, please contact us via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
