Scarborough Workshops

22 March 2019

Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale Mind is holding three different free workshops in Scarborough with the aim of boosting people’s wellbeing.

They are open to anyone whether they are struggling with their mental health or just want to improve their own coping skills.

The first two sessions are being held on Friday 22nd March from 9.30am until 12 noon (Assertive Communication and self-advocacy) and 1pm until 3.15pm (Recovery and Resilience)

The morning session on Assertive Communication and Self-Advocacy will help participants develop skills to express themselves more effectively and stand up for their point of view, while also respecting the beliefs and rights of others.

It will also look at self-advocacy – the ability to stand up for their own rights – by learning about different helpful techniques.

The afternoon session is on Recovery and Resilience. Recovery from mental ill-health can be very different for people and participants will learn about some of the ways in which people have overcome their own mental health problems.

They will also learn self-help strategies to help their recovery and build up their own coping mechanisms going forwards.

Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale Mind has a small fund to help people pay for transport if they are able to show evidence of financial hardship.

The courses will be delivered by a member of the charity’s staff in a relaxed atmosphere with opportunities for people to share and talk if they wish.

They are all being held at Falsgrave Community Resource Centre in Seamer Road, Scarborough and people can attend as many as they wish. The centre is close to the bus stops on the 7, 7A and 128 route.

Anyone interested in attending, or if you are a professional who would like to refer someone please call the charity in advance on (01723) 356562 to book their place.
