Community Mental Health Short Course
3 Hour workshop
Our Community Mental Health short course addresses key issues around mental health and in particular takes into account faith, cultural and community factors.
Mental Health is everyone’s business as we all have varying levels of mental health. However when this suffers it is important that we recognise the signs and symptoms so that we can help ourselves and others.
We believe that faith, culture and the community offer unique coping mechanisms and we want to learn and share these with others.
All faiths and backgrounds encourage positive mental and it is talked about across sacred texts and in different cultural settings.
Our Course invites applications from all communities and we will do our best to accommodate issues of culture and faith together in building an understanding of better mental health.
Our courses include sessions on, stigma in the family, community, the meaning of 'possession', if it exists and its relationship to mental health and most importantly, recovery. Sessions also include the role of substance misuse as a coping mechanism, how to talk to someone who is isolated or has been traumatised by recent life experience.
