Together for Mental Wellbeing

Trailblazers have partnered with national mental health charity Together for Mental Wellbeing to create and deliver innovative new training on breaking the cycle of offending.

It is intended for use on practitioners within the justice sector that are looking for a wider understanding on the reasons behind desistance and ways to collaborate with others to encourage someone to do so. This is an ideal pairing between two organisations that have extensive experience of working both within custody and the community with those with an offending history and while methods are different, their values, ethos and positive approach are shared.

The first training was delivered this week to a group of forensic mental health practitioners. Results will now be evaluated and a wider strategy will be devised to be rolled out soon.
