Mental Health in the Community Certificate - Applications closing this September

Register now for the Mental Health in the Community Certificate course.
A partnership development between Mental Health Ireland and Adult Continuing Education, The Certificate Mental Health in the Community is a new and innovative part time Programme designed for the community participant, to enhance their knowledge, skills and values in respect of mental wellbeing and recovery. 
The Programme will look at how communities can support and enhance individual and collective wellbeing through good practice in mental health promotion and suicide prevention. We explore contemporary concepts in mental health, and consider the role of Community for transition towards social inclusion and a vehicle for recovery to good mental health.
The participant is encouraged to reflect on his/her own and societal attitudes towards people with mental health problems, challenge the way in which mental health is defined and understood by society, and be expected to apply recovery principles with practice: citizenship, empowerment, self advocacy, social inclusion, service user participation, hope and social justice.
