Defnyddwyr yn cyflwyno tlysau i wasanaethau iechyd mewn digwyddiad gwobrau ‘ysbrydoledig‘. 

 

Mae’r gwasanaethau iechyd meddwl a chamddefnyddio sylweddau gorau ar draws Gogledd Cymru wedi cael llu o wobrau – gan yr unigolion sy’n eu defnyddio.  

 

Cafodd gwasanaethau triniaeth, therapiwtig a chymunedol ar draws y rhanbarth eu canmol yn nigwyddiad cyntaf Gwobrau Caniad, gyda chategorïau wedi’u beirniadu a thlysau wedi’u cyflwyno gan banel o gleifion, defnyddwyr gwasanaeth a’u teuluoedd 

 

Daeth y digwyddiad “ysbrydoledig” yn Neuadd y Dref y Rhyl ag ymarferwyr, comisiynwyr a phobl â phrofiad byw o gyflyrau iechyd meddwl a chamddefnyddio sylweddau at ei gilydd i gydnabod y gorau yn y sector.  

 

Ymysg yr enillwyr oedd y tîm yn Ysbyty Cefni, Llangefni, Dr Alberto Salmoiraghi, cyfarwyddwr meddygol iechyd meddwl ac anableddau dysgu Bwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Betsi Cadwaladr,  Artisans Collective Prestatyn, Keiron Rondel, Pencampwr gofalwyr o Ward Gwanwyn yn Uned Heddfan, Ysbyty Maelor, Wrecsam. 

 

Ers ei lansiad yn 2016, mae Caniad wedi ymgysylltu’n uniongyrchol â buddiannau cannoedd o bobl sydd â phrofiad o wasanaethau iechyd meddwl a chamddefnyddio sylweddau ar draws Gogledd Cymru.   

 

Mae ei rwydwaith o wirfoddolwyr wedi creu siarter cynnwys, gweithio gyda BIPBC i gyd-gynhyrchu strategaeth iechyd meddwl newydd y rhanbarth, ac maent wedi hyrwyddo cyflwyno cyfweliadau ar sail gwerth ar gyfer recriwtio i wasanaethau camddefnyddio sylweddau a iechyd meddwl. 

 

Dywedodd Denise Charles, rheolwr y gwasanaeth, fod y digwyddiad gwobrwyo wedi’i drefnu mewn partneriaeth ag aelodau o rwydwaith Caniad – a dangosodd y gwerth o sicrhau bod gan unigolion sydd â phrofiad byw lais clir wrth ddylunio a darparu’r gwasanaethau iechyd y maent yn dibynnu arnynt. 

 

Dywedodd, “Roedd yn wych defnyddio’r digwyddiad hwn i gydnabod y gwasanaethau iechyd meddwl a chamddefnyddio sylweddau gorau yn ein hardal ac i amlygu gwaith y bobl sy’n eu darparu ac i ddathlu’r gwaith hwnnw. 

 

“Roedd yn noson wych – roedd teimlo’r gobaith, cymhelliant ac undod yn yr ystafell yn ysbrydoledig iawn. 

 

“Mae’r meysydd hyn yn ein gwasanaeth iechyd yn parhau i wynebu heriau, a bydd Caniad yn parhau’n ffyddlon i gynrychioli llais y defnyddwyr gwasanaeth a’u hanwyliaid.  Ond rydym hefyd yn credu ei fod yn bwysig dathlu pan fydd pethau’n mynd yn dda. 

 

“Mae ein panel yn teimlo bod enillwyr y Gwobrau Caniad hyn yn darparu gwasanaeth gwych, ac maent yn ymrwymedig i weithio gyda’r bobl sy’n defnyddio’r gwasanaethau y maent yn eu darparu.” 

 

Roedd y digwyddiad hefyd yn cynnwys perfformiad cyntaf ffilm newydd sydd wedi’i dylunio i godi ymwybyddiaeth o fasnachu Llinellau Cyffuriau a gynhyrchwyd gan wirfoddolwyr Caniad. 

 

Bu iddynt weithio gyda’r gwneuthurwr ffilmiau di-elw, Eternal Media, i greu’r rhaglen ddogfen a dwy ffilm fer arall gyda chymorth cyllid gan Fwrdd Cynllunio Ardal Gogledd Cymru ar gyfer Camddefnyddio Sylweddau

Health services presented with trophies by users at ‘inspiring’ awards event

The best mental health and substance misuse services from across North Wales have been presented with a host of awards – by the people who use them.

Treatment, therapeutic and community services from across the region were hailed at the first Caniad Awards, with categories judged and trophies presented by a panel of patients, service users and their family members.

The “inspiring” event at Rhyl Town Hall brought together practitioners, commissioners and people with lived experience of mental health and substance misuse conditions to recognise the best in the sector.

Amongst the winners were the team at Ysbyty Cefni in Llangefni, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board medical director for mental health and learning disabilities Dr Alberto Salmoiraghi, Prestatyn’s Artisans Collective and carer champion Keiron Rondel from the Gwanwyn Ward at Wrexham Maelor’s Heddfan Unit.

Since its launch in 2016, Caniad has directly engaged with and represented the interests of hundreds of people with experience of mental health and substance misuse services from across North Wales.

Its network of volunteers has created an involvement charter, worked with BCUHB to coproduce the region’s new mental health strategy, and championed the introduction of value-based interviewing for recruitment to substance misuse and mental health services.

Service manager Denise Charles said the awards event had been organised in partnership with members of Caniad’s network – and showed the value of ensuring people with lived experience have a clear voice in the design and delivery of the health services they rely upon.

“It was wonderful to use this event to recognise the best mental health and substance misuse services in our area and to highlight and celebrate the work of the people who deliver them,” she said.

“It was an amazing evening – and to feel the hope, motivation and unity in the room was so inspiring.

“These areas of our health service continue to face challenges, and Caniad will continue to faithfully represent the voices of service users and their loved ones.  But we also believe it is important to celebrate when things are going well.

“Our panel feel that these Caniad Award winners are delivering great service, and are committed to working with the people who use the services they deliver.”

The event also included the premiere of a new film designed to raise awareness of County Lines drug trafficking produced by Caniad volunteers.

They worked with not-for-profit filmmaker Eternal Media to create the documentary and two other short films with the support of funding from the North Wales Area Planning Board for Substance Misuse.
