We offer three-hour seminars for adults which are aimed primarily at promoting good mental health, recognising basic signs of mental ill-health and relating better to others. Our approach is to help people to look at their own perceptions and enable them to see others (even those who do not have mental ill-health) in a more open way.
These sessions combine teaching elements and role-plays with time for reflection onhow we individually see mental ill-health.
The course does not look in detail at the various mental disorders, such as schizophrenia, psychoses etc., as many people, even with the same diagnosis, behave very differently. Once people are labelled with a psychiatric disorder it can be very difficult for them to be seen as anything else. If you are interested in specific conditions, the Royal College of Psychiatrists produces an excellent range of online leaflets.
The course in split into four main sections:
1) People's preconceived ideas
3) Voices in our head
4) Feedback and recap - people are free to share their own experiences or those of people they know
Please read our course outline leaflet for more information.
