|Tutors||Kerrie Dale and Ian Henwood|
This course is for people who would like to make a real difference by getting involved in shaping and developing mental health services using their personal experience of mental ill health either their own or someone they care for.
This 2-week course offers an introduction to getting involved for the purpose of informing, shaping and developing mental health services using ones own personal experience of mental ill health or as a carer or for someone else. This may be through volunteering or casual paid work by taking part in research, focus groups, peer support work, peer training or interview panels. Experienced tutors will explain the values and principles of co-production and what this means to you and to mental health services. During the course, you will have a chance to reflect on the reasons you might wish to get involved and what skills you could bring. We will explore the benefits and risks of involvement, as well as the roles, responsibilities and opportunities for involvement. Practical examples of types of involvement will be used to give a flavour of what can be expected, and encouragement will be given to build confidence to make a difference.
This 2-week course will meet Thursdays on: 16th and 23rd May
