SELF-ADVOCACY SKILLS TRAINING at CoolTan Arts

Free Workshops available September – December 2013

What is Self-Advocacy?

Self Advocacy Training is intended for individuals with mental distress. The Training is designed to help people who need to develop self confidence, skills, awareness and knowledge about services available to them e.g. Debt Management, Self Esteem and Mental health Act, and more.

It is free for everyone regardless of whether they have a personal budget.

If the individual is with a CMHT then we require that the Care Coordinator fills in a referral form and sends it to Michelle Savioz michellesavioz@cooltanarts.org.uk.

Get yourself heard, listened to, and your views acted upon!
Places are still available – core training places are free and available for people from across London, and beyond! Please contact us as there is no fixed joining date, we’ll advise on the most appropriate date to take up the training.
