Our Mental Health in the Community Certificate looks at community and civil society as a context for ‘recovery in mental health’. The participant will examine the world of mental health and ill health with a critical lens, challenging the way in which we define, understand, and work with mental and emotional distress.
On this one year part time course participant will be encouraged to look at their own and societal attitudes towards people with mental and emotional problems and be expected to recognise and apply the principles and values of the recovery perspective, citizenship, empowerment, self-advocacy, social inclusion, service user participation, hope and social justice.
