149 certificates were awarded to 57 clients in subjects such as stress management techniques, healthy living, improving confidence and self-esteem and ECDL.
All the recipients are part of the AMH Working it Out Project which is part-funded through the Northern Ireland European Social Fund Programme 2014-2020 and the Department for the Economy
Musical entertainment was provided by the newly formed AMH ukulele group along with support from Belfast Uke Jam and guests were treated to the now legendary annual BBQ feast!
Reflecting on the year, Service Manager Eoin McAnuff said “We are delighted to celebrate our clients’ achievements throughout the year in our service. Our clients have worked hard to achieve goals they have set themselves and it is wonderful to organise this event to celebrate their success. Our clients have worked hard to promote their own positive mental health and their achievements are a testament to the work they put into doing this”
“I’d also like to pay thanks to our funders The Department for the Economy through the European Social Fund programme and the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust who have enabled us to support our clients to improve their mental health and well-being.”
