Recent Feedback – Mental Health Training Morning for Salt & Light Church Pastoral Teams in the South West

On 18th February 2020, I led 2 hours worth of training sessions introducing mental health and supporting those who struggle with it better. My sessions included:

  • An introduction to mental health and our role in supporting those that struggle with it.
  • An introduction to stress and trauma, it’s impact on us holistically, and what we can do to begin to have better well-being in the midst of it.
  • An introduction to how our bodies respond to stress/trauma, how we can become hyper-sensitive to these response systems, and how we can support individuals in regulating themselves in these states.

Around 22 people attended the event held at Christ Church Woodbury. I asked for those there to fill out a feedback form on the training I provided, and 17 of the 22 did so. In four different areas they ranked me from 1 (awful) to 6 (excellent). Here are the average scores from their reviews:

  • Session Content – 5.59
  • Session Delivery – 5.71
  • Interaction Level – 5.41
  • Use of Media – 5.12

Here are a few quotes from some of the participants:

“This was an extremely informative session – delivery was engaging and content useful.”

“Very worthwhile and interesting. Informative. I am a Samaritan so all help gratefully received!”

“Matt is a great communicator and has great practical and theoretical knowledge of the subject.”

“Very informative and thought provoking!”
