A community based course to increase awareness and challenge stigma about mental health that participants can draw upon in their day-to-day lives and work.
The views of people with ‘lived’ experience of emotional or mental health issues are central to informing the course content as well as up to date research evidence.
The course is suitable for anyone including staff and volunteers from a variety of settings working with Adults, and/or Children and Families, who wish to learn more about mental health. It consists of a mixture of factual presentation, small group work and large group discussion within agreed ground rules of confidentiality and respecting each other’s points of view. There are extensive handouts available
