Wendy’s Mental Health First Aid Certification: A Milestone at Larkham House

We are delighted to announce a significant milestone in our pursuit of comprehensive patient care at Larkham House: Wendy, our esteemed Practice Manager, has recently obtained certification as a Mental Health First Aider. This achievement underscores our commitment to prioritizing mental health support within our practice and represents a significant advancement in our approach to holistic patient care.

Wendy’s decision to undergo training with MHFA England reflects her dedication to professional & personal development and her recognition of the crucial role mental health plays in overall well-being. Through rigorous coursework and practical training, she has acquired a deep understanding of mental health issues and the skills necessary to provide immediate assistance to individuals experiencing mental health challenges.

Prioritizing Mental Health Support

Why does this matter? Well, here at Larkham House, we’re all about treating the whole person, not just their teeth. We get that mental health is just as important as physical health, maybe even more so. With Wendy on board as a MHFAider, we’ve got someone in our corner who really gets it.

You know those days when the stress feels like it’s piling up, and you’re not sure how to deal? That’s where Wendy comes in. She’s the friendly face you can turn to when you’re feeling overwhelmed, whether it’s because of work stuff or something else entirely. She’s got your back, no judgment, just support.

Supporting the Whole Person

And it’s not just us she’s here for – it’s our patients too. Dental visits can be nerve-wracking for some folks, and Wendy’s there to lend a listening ear and a helping hand to anyone who needs it. She’s all about creating a safe space where everyone feels heard and cared for.

Wendy’s certification isn’t just a piece of paper – it’s a game-changer. It shows that we’re serious here at Larkham House. It’s about time we started talking about it openly and honestly, and Wendy’s leading the charge.

So, next time you’re feeling the pressure or just need someone to talk to, remember – Wendy’s got your back. Together, we’re breaking down barriers and making mental health support a priority. Here’s to brighter days ahead, thanks to Wendy and her unwavering commitment to our well-being.
