Mental Health in the Community - Training for Self Help Groups
Thu 8 September 2016, 10:30 – 14:00 BST
Lifetimes New Training course, free for Self Help Groups and members of the public who are interested in starting their own group.
‘Mental Health in the Community’ is a short mental health awareness course, written and delivered by Lifetimes Charity. The 3 hour course will cover mental health issues such as depression, suicide and anxiety but importantly includes the topics of self- care, resilience and signposting to local and national support and resources. This bespoke training course is accompanied by a certificate and a training manual for trainees to use as a reference guide.
We are offering the course free to Self Help group members and peer facilitators, as well as those who are interested in starting their own Self Help group.
What is a self help group? Self help groups are support groups that offer and provide mutual support or mutual aid. The members of the group share a common problem, issue, illness or addiction.
Groups do not need to be based around a mental health condition to attend this training. Focusing on any shared illness or experience can bring up difficult emotions and affect our mental health. Lifetimes’ bespoke training course offers support with having difficult conversations and signposting to other services, as well as providing the tools for your own self-care and resilience.
‘Mental Health in the Community’ Training course is one of a number of new initiatives being delivered under the Cascade Project. Cascade is an innovative project which aims to instil Confidence And Skills, Communication And Direct Empowerment to our community.
