Description

 

Skills & Learning Bournemouth Dorset and Poole (along with other Adult Education providers nationally) are taking part in a national research project. This work is testing out whether short, part-time community learning courses help people to develop strategies to manage their mild to moderate mental health issues (like stress, worry, anxiety, and depression). This presentation will share the work to date and look to the future. 

 

Speaker Biographies

 

Sarah Brown

 

I have worked at Skills & learning for approximately 14 years, starting as a volunteer after my daughter was born. Due to experiences within my family I am interested in mental health and gender identity. I deliver Transgender Awareness to staff within Skills & Learning and I will be starting Therapeutic Counselling Level 4 in September. I started working on the Living Well project last November and took over the role of Project Officer from April this year. I have thoroughly enjoyed working on the project and meeting a wide range of people. I look forward to being part of the second year of this national research project.


Sara Plant

(S) is a GP who has had numerous periods of time off, for work related stress/burnout. They have sought help from colleagues, their GP, psychiatry and occupational health when appropriate. When they got an email about the ‘Living Well Project’ from Skills & Learning, so thought they might as well give it a spin.......
(S) is now back at work but continues to benefit from and enjoy the new life skills that they learnt through ‘The Living Well Project’. They have also made some great friends who are all from very different backgrounds but have anxiety and depression in common which has glued them together and provided a natural peer support group. They am now LIVING WELL.........thanks to the Living Well Project Dorset.

 

Vicky Bray

 

Vicky Bray, aged 33, Owned by two house cats. Has experienced poor mental health since her early 20's, but after many years has started to regained her sparkle through the Living Well Project.
