The Advocacy Project is a local based charity, providing mental health advocacy services.
They are excited to announce that they are running a mental health peer mentoring course funded Westminster Adult Education Service.
The course aims to support those who have experienced mental health to build their knowledge and skills in peer mentoring, so that they can use their mental health experience to positively support others with mental health difficulties. This will help participants to become socially connected, being able to talk about their experience without stigma and taboo and develop opportunities for employment and training.
After the completion of the course there are possibilities to become a peer mentor with The Advocacy Project.
The criteria is for anyone 19+ from disadvantaged communities, particularly individuals with complex needs who experience mental health difficulties, live in Westminster or Kensington & Chelsea and not in employment, education or training.
They will be running taster sessions and two week courses over various locations, the first one being held at The Abbey Centre, 34 Great Smith Street, SW1P 3BU on the 17 January 13.00 – 15.00pm
After this the course will be delivered over two weeks at The Abbey Centre on the:
- 31 January 10.00 – 3.30pm
- 7 February 10.00 – 3.30pm
