- Developing a toolbox of coping strategies to support young people in their recovery
- Setting up, launching and sustaining a Voice Collective peer support group

- Managing challenging situations in groups
Who is the course for?
This course is aimed at those already familiar with the Voice Collective ethos and approach to voice-hearing, and who intend to use their learning to launch and facilitate Voice Collective peer support groups within their organisations. This could include: psychologists, youth workers, support workers, nurses, therapists, OTs, social workers, mentors & more.
Young people (aged 16+) with lived experience of voices/visions, and who wish to train to co-facilitate groups, are particularly encouraged. We welcome joint applications between workers and young people.
Due to funding requirements, this course is aimed only at those who intend to launch and facilitate Voice Collective peer support groups for young people under the age of 19.
