Learn to Talk for a Fit Mind: Intro to Talk for Health
In today’s society it is all too easy to feel lonely and disconnected from others and this can have a negative impact on our emotional health and the quality of our life.
Here at Talk for Health we know that true connection happens when we let go of our social masks and start being who we really are. This is why we run our Intros and Full Programmes and are setting up T4H Cafes: to help you feel more connected to yourself and other people.
Our Programme teaches the skills of authentic talking, empathic listening and managing a group. This enables all our graduates to go on and join or set up their own ongoing groups for connection and wellbeing. Without the need for professional therapists – which is why we call them peer-to-peer support groups. We believe that by learning these basic skills, people can support each other and make a real positive difference to their mental health.
We invite you to come and enjoy a three hour Intro session, which is FREE, to find out if it is right for you.
The Induction will give you a chance to experience some of the four key learning areas of our full programme:
- Open and truthful talking
- Empathic listening
- Basic counselling skills
- How to set up an ongoing group to take care of your own wellbeing and enable others to do so
Come join us and learn how to talk to for a fit mind!
After the Intro, you can go straight into a Talk for Health Cafe, where you will learn peer counselling skills as well as have plenty of space to talk and get/give support. You can also sign up to the Full 4-day Talk for Health Peer Counselling Programme to deepen your knowledge, skills, and get even more space to share.
We’ll let you know the times and dates for the Full Programme at the Intro or you can find them on Eventbrite. After the programme you will have access to free ongoing groups and Talk for Health Cafes, more psychology learning opportunities and a growing community of caring and supportive people!
If you have any questions, or are unable to sign-up using Eventbrite, please call or text ‘call me’ on 07826 148 461 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
As we are funded by Islington NHS we have to give priority to Islington residents, students, or those with a GP in either of those boroughs. If you live outside of those boroughs we invite you to attend the Intro and we are able to invite you to join the programme if there are unfilled spaces.
Please note that if at any point either before or during the programme facilitators feel that by taking part there is a risk of detriment to your wellbeing then you will not be allowed to continue with the programme. Facilitators will support with suggestions for alternative referrals.
