GAMH’s Talking about Mental Health project is running a Mental Health Awareness workshop open to staff and volunteers that work directly with black and minority ethnic (BME) communities.
Anyone can experience mental health problems at some point in our lives, therefore we are likely to come into contact with someone experiencing a mental health problem on a regular basis in our personal and professional lives. People from BME backgrounds can also experience additional pressures on wellbeing and increased problems accessing services.
The workshop aims to provide participants with an introduction to mental health issues & how to help; mental health stigma; and recovery – including a film by people from BME communities discussing mental health issues and recovery.
The workshop will also explore how mainstream mental health services can be more inclusive of BME communities. And is delivered by GAMH Co-trainers from a range of backgrounds including BME Communities – bringing diverse voices and experiences of mental health issues and recovery into training.
Places are free but are limited. To book please contact:
