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. This course is currently free to everyone.
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

This support group has been set up specifically for carers of teenagers, who may be struggling, or would like to better cope with some of the behaviours that their young people are showing.
The group will be facilitated by Thinking Aloud and will aim to meet once every 6 weeks during term time. The programme will very much be determined by yourselves, as this series of support groups has been set up with you in mind to meet your current needs.
It would be helpful if you could email email@example.com any particular issues that you would perhaps like covered in advance, as a more detailed programme could be drawn up ahead of the sessions, if we know what the issues are.
