Lorraine Hamilton (Head of Training)
I have been delivering training for the past 20 years and have a number of training qualifications, including a BA(hons) in Education and Training. I’ve worked at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind for 10 years, initially joining to manage a prison mentoring project with a team of volunteers. I am an accredited trainer for Mental Health First Aid England, delivering a number of the accredited adult and youth courses across business and education. I also deliver Safetalk suicide alertness training and lots of other mental health awareness courses. In the last four years I have worked closely with a variety of organisations to raise awareness about mental health and wellbeing and this is something I am very proud of. Helping to tackle the stigma through training and making a difference to even one person makes it all worthwhile.
I love to get out into nature with my dog Daisy, particularly to the seaside. I love being by the sea. That’s definitely my happy place. I enjoy meeting up with friends for some nice food and lots of chat. I also enjoy reading to relax. In my spare time I am an active member of a local Rotary Club, helping to raise money for local charities. As part of this I help to organise the Humber Bridge Half Marathon. I like watching everyone cross the finish line but can’t see myself ever running it. More of a cheerleader I think.
