Realising Recovery

Blue butterflyAn opportunity to examine and develop a practical understanding of ’recovery’ – whether or not you have your own experience of mental health issues.

  • Is recovery the best way of describing what people want for themselves?
  • What are the relationships between mental health, identity, treatment and services?

A LEARN certificate will be given to everyone who completes the 2 full days of the course.

Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th June, 09:30-16:30, Argyle House, 3 Lady Lawson Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9DR

Independent Advocacy Works For Us!

Find out about the difference that Independent Advocacy makes to people’s lives from people who have used it. This 2-hour session is led by members of Voice of Advocacy, a group of people who have had experience of using independent advocacy.

 Understanding Eating Disorders: Seen But Not Heard 

Learn about the many different eating disorder diagnoses from people who share their stories of living with these experiences. We use film clips and interactive activities to explore causes, treatments and the physical and psychological effects of eating disorders. We will address any fears and challenges you may have when it comes to helping someone with an eating disorder. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Understanding BPD: Much More than a Label

This 2-day interactive course promotes positive attitudes towards people who may attract a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder.

Hear what it is like to live with the types of experiences that may lead to a BPD diagnosis and its impact and discuss the ways to live well with these experiences.

This is an opportunity to reflect on and share ways of working with people who may attract a BPD diagnosis, recognise areas for change, and develop your skills in responding helpfully to people.
