Free training sessions for Southwark Patients and residents

Hello,

We now have new dates for our patient training sessions that will be taking place in July. Copies of the flyers are attached to this email for your information.

Patient Leadership training – 16 July 2014 – Poster

Patient Leader Skills training – 23 July 2014 – Poster

These sessions are being run again following the high demand and interest in them when they ran earlier in the year. You can see details about the events on our public website too.

As part of National Patient Participation group week this week we also held an event on Tuesday to share skills and knowledge between practices. Thank you to all of the patients and practice staff who came along and helped to make it a really engaging session. You can find the presentations and resources from the event on our website under ‘Developing the patient voice’.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Self Advocacy training is an award-winning series of free classes and talks teaching you the skills you need to have a stronger voice in situations where you previously weren’t listened to, were discriminated against or found barriers stopping you from accessing information or services. We provide an informal but structured environment where you can look at ways to help yourself, pick up strategies for challenging issues, behaviours or situations and learn how to improve your general wellbeing. Classes take place every Tuesday from 11am to 1pm and Thursday from 2pm to 4pm.

Indesign course

Hello everyone

Please find attached details of our next Indesign course taster session on June 12th.  These courses are for people recovering from mental health problems.  The course proper begins June 17th and runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 5 weeks.  Students completing the Indesign and Photoshop courses at Blackfriars MHWBS have joined our Art2print social enterprise to get hands on work experience of being in a design team.  Others have accessed full-time courses.   It has helped nearly all to boost their confidence, “ It gave me inspiration to be creative and not to be afraid to try new things”.
