Modules available:

Responding Effectively to Early Signs of Mental Distress

One of the most common reactions of workers to someone in mental distress is to try and manage the situation, rather than be with the person. This course will help the student to respond to the possible signs of mental distress effectively, humanistically and compassionately.

Understanding Recovery, Theory into Practice

This course introduces the concept of recovery and examines how we can turn this theory into practice. For anyone wanting to develop recovery orientated practices and services, this course is a must.

Psychosis in Practice: Making Recovery Happen

This course will help students explore the misconceptions around the concept of “schizophrenia”; the elements of recovery in psychosis; barriers to recovery in psychosis; being with someone experiencing distress of psychosis and creating systems and environments to enable recovery.

Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse: Beginning the Recovery Process

Drawing on the direct experiences of the course leader and other males’, personal journeys from sexual abuse, this course has been designed for both male survivors wanting to explore and start the recovery process and practitioners, family members and friends who want to understand and help male survivors begin their recovery.

Introducing Person Centred Planning

In this course the student will explore person centred planning and why it is a powerful way of helping people on their recovery journey. The modules examine key concepts underpinning person-centred planning, and how the student can implement this in their work with people or in your own life.

Introduction to Community Development and Recovery in Mental Health

This course introduces the community development approach to working with people with mental health issues, their families and friends, the wider community; organisations that provide mental health services; policy makers and managers.

Part One: An Introduction to Hearing Voices Movement

This course concerns the development of the hearing voices movement and the underpinning values and theories that inform the hearing voices approach.
