Mental Health Awareness within the BME community workshop

The aim of Mental Health Awareness workshop is for you to gain a wider understanding of the issues surrounding mental health within BME communities, both your own and others, and so to work more effectively with mental health problems. With 1 in 4 people with mental health issues experiencing stigma and discrimination, it is clear that people themselves need to have a better understanding of the issues, to break down the fears and misunderstandings surrounding mental illness, and which can often prevent people from seeking appropriate help.

We offer low cost but highly effective workshops as we are on a mission to create more understanding on how much culture can take a big part in mental health whether it means talking about it, accessing it or throughout treatment. With more understanding about culture differences and taking it on board can help eliminating the stigmas attached to mental health.

We are perfectly aware at Generation Reform that our structure and content of our workshops, there is no other workshop in the UK to offer it mainly due to the thought provoking and encouragement of speaking more openly. We are more focused about prevention and tackling mental health full force whereas more workshops deal with coping mechanisms we want to target culture as it’s a subject that is not highly discussed.
