What are the BENEFITS of this project?

This project will support you to improve self-confidence, employability skills and employment opportunities. You will be increasing the knowledge and understanding of mental health for employers, thereby reducing mental health stigma, discrimination and exclusion from employment.

This will be achieved by training service users to provide mental health awareness training to local employers as accredited trainers.

The stages of the project

LEARN: Participants can enrol and will be trained to become an accredited Mental Health Awareness Trainer. 

TRAIN: Participants may deliver training sessions to a range of organisations in Harrow about Mental Heath Awareness. 

ADVANCE: Participants will receive Continuous Personal or Professional Development in the form of ongoing workshops, coaching and mentoring.

Feedback from LEARN participants

The course is not just about being a trainer, because I’ve learnt about communication and challenging myself to be more expressive. It’s taught me life skills which has given me a boost to get back into work.
