Free Mind­out youth men­tal health train­ing

Bray People - - THE NOTEBOOK -

FREE MIND­OUT youth men­tal health tu­tor train­ing is to be held in Bray for lo­cal youth work­ers and other adults work­ing with young peo­ple in in­for­mal youth set­tings.

The train­ing, ar­ranged by Bray Area Part­ner­ship, will take place on Fe­bru­ary 26 and 27 from 10 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. each day, with lunch pro­vided.

Par­tic­i­pants will be fully trained to de­liver the Mind­Out train­ing to a group of young peo­ple.

The train­ing is based on the re­source Mind­Out which has been devel­oped by Health Pro­mo­tion HSE West and NUI Gal­way.

Mind­Out is a 12 ses­sion men­tal health pro­gramme which takes a pos­i­tive ap­proach to the pro­mo­tion of emo­tional and men­tal health among young peo­ple.

The em­pha­sis is on giv­ing time to young peo­ple to ex­plore what chal- lenges their men­tal health and look­ing at the ways they cope, rang­ing from per­sonal cop­ing skills to in­for­mal net­works of sup­port and pro­fes­sional or vol­un­tary sup­port ser­vices. All par­tic­i­pants will be given a copy of the Mind­Out re­source pack and Good Habits of Mind sup­port pack.

Train­ing is car­ried out over three days. Fol­low­ing train­ing day one and two par­tic­i­pants go back to their or­gan­i­sa­tion and be­gin to im­ple­ment the pro­gramme.

Par­tic­i­pants then re­turn six weeks later for day three which in­cludes a re­view, self-care for tu­tors and or­gan­i­sa­tional is­sues.

Learn­ing con­tent in­cludes topics such as ex­press­ing feel­ings, cop­ing strate­gies and sup­port, pos­i­tive self-talk and seek­ing help.
