Event description

Description

This course is part of our Informed Practice series that develops the knowledge and understanding of staff and volunteers to enable them to continuously work from a deeper perspective. This course is developed out of the ongoing service and research experience of our 'Equal Access' services.

Who should come on the course

The course is particularly important to Health and Social Care staff. It is essential to anyone working with people and communities from an minority ethnic background. The course is also useful for managers and policy makers who are shaping the service landscape.

The aims of the course

To learn about the impact that culture has on the way we approach mental health and wellbeing.

The objectives of the course

  • A better understanding of barriers in accessing services experienced by minority ethnic people

  • The opportunity to enhance cultural sensitivity and competence

  • Understanding of mental health and mental illness among culturally-diverse communities in Scotland

  • Practical tools to reduce cross-cultural misunderstanding and encourage positive cross-cultural communication

  • Exploring how the political context such as 'Brexit' can impact on mental health.

Our trainers

Krzysztof Novak and Anika Wycislik coordinate Health in Mind’s Equal Access services in Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian. They both have many years of experience of working in minority ethnic services.

Terms and conditions

The course includes teas, coffee and biscuits but does not include lunch as there are lots of lunch outlet choices just beside us.
