Recently a number of Wessex Archaeology staff took part in training organised by Breaking Ground Heritage’s Richard Bennett.

The training was in Mental Health First Aid, with a focus upon the Armed Forces, Wessex Archaeology staff were invited onto the training due to our involvement with Operation Nightingale.  Richard Harrington led the training, Richard is the Director of the charity Support Our Forces (Forces in the Community) so has vast experience of and passion for supporting ex-Service personnel.
The training was hosted by Tedworth House and was given to a range of individuals. Having staff trained in Mental Health First Aid means that Wessex Archaeology can better support the people it works with.
