Meet the national training team

Alison Ebbitt

Alison is very committed to improving access to information about mental health and challenging stigma surrounding talking about mental health openly. She is qualified social worker, mental health officer, counsellor, family mediator and has worked for many years delivering SMHFA and SMHFA: YP courses. She is very proud to be a member of the national training team and enjoys the challenges. Alison also teaches and tutors on the law course at Strathclyde and Edinburgh Law School.

When you begin your training as an instructor one member of the team becomes your mentor. She or he will:

  • give you guidance and advice
  • help you work your way through the training
  • give feedback as you practice your skills
  • authorise your approval as a fully fledged instructor.

Each member of the training team is an active SMHFA and SMHFA: YP instructor so they are able to understand the challenges and joys of training.
