About

Nedaye Zan is a mental health project for local Afghan women, working to reduce social isolation, increase wellbeing and generate opportunities for the Afghan community.  

Meaning “Voices of Women” in Dari, Nedaye Zan provides training and support for members to become mental health campaigners, and to speak out for improved quality of health, welfare and education services for the Afghan community. 

Activities

The project’s main activities are:

- Fortnightly workshops for Afghan women

- Annual training for Afghan women campaigners

- Bi-annual conferences for local health and welfare professionals

- Advocacy and interpreting support for Afghan mental health service users

Fortnightly workshops

Our fortnightly workshops are an opportunity for Afghan women to share their experiences, meet others and to learn about the services available to them. 

At our information sessions we invite service representatives to speak to the group about their service. These sessions are also an opportunity for service providers to explore with the group ways to improve access for the Afghan community.

Our support sessions provide a comfortable environment for Nedaye Zan members to explore topics related to mental health. In a supportive and friendly atmosphere group members have the opportunity to share experiences and find ways to improve mental wellbeing.

Workshop dates

Our workshops run fortnightly on Wednesdays 1pm- 3pm at Harrow Women’s Centre, Andrews Close, Off Bessborough Road, Harrow, HA1 3GE

Next session: Wednesday 19th December 2018. Newcomers welcome!
