More About Me

About Me: 

I worked in the Mental Health field from 1988-1993, progressing from Nursing assistant to Staff Nurse.

I then left general Mental Health services to pursue my interest in the field of alcohol and substance misuse, as both a practitioner and trainer with the Mid and West Wales Drug and Alcohol Advisory Service – working as Development worker/Team Leader for firstly the county of Ceredigion and then North Carmarthenshire. I then became the Education, Training and Brief Interventions co-ordinator for the same organisation until 2007.

I spent four years as chair of Alcohol Action Wales (1999-2003). I became part of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers in 2003, following the TNT in Crete.

I became a Mental Health First Aid (Wales)Instructor in 2008, and became an ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) Trainer in 2009. I am also a trainer on the EQUIP programme (Equality in Primary Care). In 2010 I became a Youth Mental Health First Aid Instructor. In 2011 I Trained as a SAFETALK instructor (Suicide Awareness For Everyone)

I am a freelance training consultant, with my own company (Mike H Training), and have worked as an Associate with a number of organisations. I have delivered courses on a wide variety of health and social care topics, Mental Health, and Behaviour Change in the UK over the last 18 years.
