EXPORTBelize in collaboration with the Belize Bureau of Standards held a Stakeholder Consultation on Tuesday August 15, 2017 at BELTRAIDE’s Headquarters in Belmopan City. This consultation was aimed to review and discuss the Final Draft for the CARICOM Regional Standard on Cocoa and Chocolate Products where approval or disapproval of the standard would be commented on and submitted by Belize for further submission to CROSQ, the regional organization for standards. The session consisted of those key stakeholders within the cacao industry who the regional standard, when passed, would ultimately impact.
The Belize Training and Employment Centre, in collaboration with the Mental Health Association of Belize and in partnership with the National Board of Certified Counselors – International (NBCC- I) held a two day Mental Health Facilitator Training. The training had participants from a wide cross-section of agencies both public and private.
The Mental Health Facilitator training is designed to improve access to mental health care in a given community by educating and training community members from diverse back-grounds. The training was geared towards increasing awareness to some of the issues of mental health and providing front-line persons with resources that will allow them to offer assistance in the initial stages before referral to a trained counselor.
The training was facilitated by Master Trainer Dr Shirlene Smith-Augustine an Associate Professor and Coordinator for Recruitment & Admissions in the Department of Counseling at North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University.
