Digital Focus Group

 

No one can deny the emergence of digital communication in modern culture. As a result of the digital revolution, more and more health organisations are developing their own apps and websites to help provide better quality services. However, how many of these apps and websites are actually useful? This workshop gives you the opportunity to evaluate and review existing digital apps and services. The workshop will include an in depth discussion on what you find helpful, and what you did not. We will then work shop  ideas on what could be improved or changed. All of your ideas and suggestions will be fed back directly to NHS commissioners who will use it as their blue print for future digital developments.

 

 

Step-up Transitions

 

This workshop is co-designed and co-delivered by Step Up:Transitions champions. Step Up: Transitions is a collective of professionals and young people with lived experience who co-produce and deliver trainings across London for 16-25 year olds. We use real life experiences to create activities, tools and resources that encourage a more prepared, resourceful and resilient approach to dealing with mental health in times of change. Expect to meet passionate young people who want to share their tools and tips on increasing your resilience through inter active activity.

 

 

Well-Being Through Art

 

Words can have a powerful impact on those hearing or reading them. Words can also have a powerful effect on the person creating them. Poetry, story telling, lyricism and other forms of writing have long been known to be a great way to express ones self. It empowers us to tell our story, express our feelings, and/or convey a message. There has been a long link between the positive effect of telling our stories and building mental health resilience. We are collaborating with No Bounds to bring a workshop on how you can express your personal story through lyricism and poetry. This will include a lesson on how to structure your words to convey your message, examples of completed work, and a chance to create something yourself. All those attending the workshop will also be given the opportunity to submit their work to I Am Hip Hop for a chance to have their work published in a print magazine! “The pen is mightier than the sword,”

 

No Bounds is youth lead charity that aims to break the cycle of poverty, crime and discrimination by applying a holistic approach to change. One of its most popular projects is a music culture magazine titled I Am Hip-Hop. All of the content the magazine publishes has been written, created & designed by young volunteers. No Bounds offers a platform for young people to express their emotions, opinions and narrative. As well as a chance to simultaneously gain important media skills, experience and contacts.

 

Mental Health Awareness

 

This workshop is a safe space to better understand mental health and mental illness. The workshop will include discussion and inter active activity, delivered by Rethink MI young champions and staff who will share their own journeys of getting support for their mental health. The workshop will be an opportunity to explore and understand the effects of stigma and discrimination on people’s mental health and how mental health difficulties can manifest in day to day interactions. The workshop also aims to give you more information on where to find key sources of information on mental health and mental illness.

If you have any dietary or access needs please let us know in advance by emailing coproduction@rethink.org or call 0207 840 3018
