Can you spot a person with a disability?
It’s not as obvious as you think!
Today is world Mental Health Day, it is important to remember that not all disabilities and health conditions are obvious.
1 in 4 people in Wales suffer with a Mental Health condition at some point in their lives, but that doesn’t make them less of a person.
Mental health conditions, like any other conditions should not be seen negatively, today is a great opportunity to encourage people to talk about their mental health, this will help break down some of the misconceptions surrounding the subject.
Accessible Wales will be holding a Disability Awareness Training course on Thursday 21st September at the Cynon Valley Museum. The course costs £32.45 and will run from 10am – 1pm.

“I write to thank you for the invaluable training you have provided to our staff both at the Aberdare and Cardiff sites. Our staff thoroughly enjoyed the training sessions and found the interaction both educational and fun. Many staff members are apprehensive around training as they worry they will made to feel or look foolish – this was definitely not the case with your training and everyone came back animated and enthusiastic about the subject.
