Avem bucuria de a anunța că facem parte din organizațiile a căror proiect a fost finanțat de către Harrow Giving Grants. Proiectul nostru se concentrează pe îmbunătățirea sănătății mintale a membrilor comunității românești din Harrow. 

Pentru a putea atinge acest scop, vom recruta voluntari care or deveni Campioni/ Champions ai sănătății mintale! Acești voluntari vor primi un curs intensiv de prim ajutor al sănătății mintale predat de către dr. Silvia Gerea. Silvia Gerea (AFBPsS, BA Hons, MSc, PhD, MBACP, MBABCP, Senior Associate MRSM, Reg.Scientist) este un psiholog român acreditat în UK cu o experiență extinsă. Acestea este al doilea proiect în care lucrăm împreună cu Dr. Gerea în sprijinul comunității.

Vor fi două sesiuni una organizată pe 15 iulie și a doua pe 24 octombrie la care vor fi formate două grupuri separate de Campioni.

După training, scopul Campionilor este să meargă în comunitate și să împărtășească din informațiile primite și să elimine stigma atunci când vorbim despre sănătatea mintală.

Aceste sesiuni sunt organizate gratis și sunt deschise vorbitorilor de limba română care locuiesc în Harrow. Vă rugăm să ne scrieți la dacă doriți să participați.
