Golden Key Peer Mentors

Mental Health Awareness Week: has life been hard?

08 May 2017

Golden Key Peer Mentors will be running a workshop this week as part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2017.

Workshop: Has life been hard?

This week (8-12 May 2017) is Mental Health Awareness Week . As part of this the Golden Key Peer Mentors will be delivering a workshop aimed at adults in Lawrence Weston and the surrounding area, who suffer from anxiety and depression and would like to connect with people who relate and can share tips and experiences in a supportive environment. The workshop will also provide information and tools for coping with symptoms and gaining insight into anxiety and depression.

Tuesday 9th May 12 - 2pm  |  Lawrence Weston Youth Centre

Peers have lived experience, and through their recovery, have gained an insight into what works and what doesn’t – they have gathered together a collection of ideas, strategies and activities to share with people experiencing anxiety and depression in a workshop. These are activities that have worked from them, and are hopefully empowering to those taking part in the workshop because they know that they are delivered by people who have direct experience of using them.

Strategies include using art and creativity, relaxation and mindfulness techniques, and positive psychology.

 

The workshop has been designed, developed and delivered by the Peers with the support of the Golden Key Peer Mentor Team. They have already delivered this course successfully in community venues, and are now delivering it as part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2017.
