What is Image Making?

Join our creative, fun and vibrant Graphics training department and discover your creative side

Hello everyone,

Please find attached details of our brand new Image Making course taster session on Thursday  July 24th.  These courses are for people recovering from mental health problems and cost only £20 a session for people with a personal budget.  The course proper begins July 29th and runs on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for 5 weeks.  Students completing the Image Making course 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”.

The Voice of People with Experience of Schizophrenia or Psychosis

  • We want to hear from people with experience of mental health issues.
    The focus of the work of the Schizophrenia Commission is care, support and treatment for schizophrenia or psychosis.
  • We know psychiatric diagnostics labels are often difficult – because they change, they maybe unhelpful to recovery, they don’t emphasise the full experience of managing serious health problems but tend to focus on problems and symptoms. Individuals manage their distress in many different ways – and we want to hear from you about your experiences.- View the more information regarding this event in the invite flyer CLICK HERE:The Voice of People with Experience of Schizophrenia or Psychosis Invite Flyer

Carers Privacy & Dignity Focus Group

SLaM (South London & Maudsley) are currently running a series of Focus Groups in order to highlight issues with Privacy & Dignity within both inpatient and outpatient care spheres.
To be treated with privacy and dignity can mean many things to different people. Examples of these include, attitudes and behaviours of staff, communication, the environment, privacy to protect peoples modesty, confidentiality, to have nutritional needs met and to be free from abuse.

  • It is often the case that carers know a huge amount about where there are holes in service provision and where problems are to be found, as well how to fix them and improve things!
  • If you are a carer then this focus group is for you or perhaps you know or have a great carer in which case please let them know.View the flyer for this event CLICK HERE:Carers Privacy Dignity Flyer 2012
