Mental Health Awareness Day for Refugees

Ref: C2228959

The course will look at understanding of the term mental health within the cultures of the learners and the differences between their cultures and the UK understanding of mental health. it will challenge possible stigmas that may exist in a non-threatening and non-judgemental environment. This will be done mainly through language exercises and looking at appropriacy of language. The tutor will also discuss (through language exercises and games) basic strategies for helping the learners and how they can access help. The tutor is an ESOL specialist who has worked with refugees and asylum seekers. She is not a mental health specialist.
