An introduction to facilitating recovery in people with mental illness - Singapore

Hope, healing, empowerment and connection

Whats's it about?

This 2 day workshop has been designed to provide participants with a broad overview of the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to effectively support people who are living with diagnoses of mental illness or other sorts of mental distress.  The workshop will draw on participant experiences with mentally unwell people, their families and other supports.  These experiences will be constructively discussed with trouble shooting exercises built in.  The presenters will outline and discuss the recovery approach to mental health and present evidence and direction as to how this information can be flexibly applied, in order to best support a person on their recovery journey.  Learning activities will encourage participants to reflect on how they currently practise and help them identify what they can improve in order to work more effectively.
