Students on the Community Link programme who would like to explore ways of improving their mental health
No previous experience or qualifications necessary other than those already in place for the C.L. programme (E2 Literacy, willingness to work as part of a group)
Students will consider what is meant by mental health, well-being and recovery. They will be introduced to the three main principles behind the course: mental health is made up of many factors; physical and mental health are related and the importance of being your own expert on your own mental health. Topics covered will include: causes, symptoms and treatments of a variety of mental health problems, cognitive behavioural techniques, mindfulness, emotional self-management and assertiveness. The class will also include social trips and activities and the exact content and structure of the course will be agreed with input from class members.
There is no formal assessment on this course.
