Our courses are created by people with varied experiences in mental health, who share their knowledge of what works. Every course is developed and delivered equally by both people with lived experience of mental health issues and health experts, and participants also have their say about what they want to learn. People from all sorts of backgrounds take part, like young people, clinicians and learning specialists.
It’s a new way of learning about mental health – it’s relaxed, everyone is equal and there are no rights or wrongs. By getting involved, you can discover how to take action to be who you are, what you want from life, and what actually works to help you and others stay mentally healthy.
