We're delighted to be working with Edinburgh charity, Health in Mind to deliver a Mental Health Series over the coming weeks.

Each session will cover a specific dimension of Mental Health, this session will focus on Supporting Others.

It can be hard to know what to do when supporting someone with a mental health problem. This session will be lead by Hayley Chandler, and will cover how you can be supportive of others when they are experiencing mental health difficulties. This discussion will be followed by a Q&A, and will cover:
  • Listening
  • Barriers to listening
  • Validating people’s experiences
  • Using our own experiences to help others
  • If you suspect somebody is thinking about suicide
  • Where people can seek further support
Hayley is the Peer Collaborative Coordinator and has worked at Health in Mind for 7 years in the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Team. The Peer Collaborative is a network for Peer Workers in Edinburgh. Peer Workers are people who use their lived experience of mental health challenges to accompany others on their recovery journey.

This series is supported by Parabola.

The final session in this series is Mental Health Series: Habits and Habit Formation

Health in Mind is Edinburgh’s mental health charity, we’ve been promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in Scotland since 1982. We do this through a wide range of services to support people and enable them to make a positive difference in their lives.
We focus on: early intervention community-based support (e.g. self-management groups, befriending); trauma support for those abused in childhood; and counselling.
We help some of the most excluded and vulnerable people in our society, and we rely on volunteers, fundraising and donations to help us do this.

This video webinar will be delivered via Zoom. Once registered you'll be sent joining instructions along with a delegate list for networking purposes.
