SOS: New dates for Supporters Programme for Family & Friends
The next SOS Supporters Programme will start next week online over Zoom. It is an 8-hour programme held over 3 sessions. We are currently recruiting participants for the programme. The dates are as follows –
- Thursday 1st June 6pm to 9pm
- Thursday 8th June 6pm to 9pm
- Thursday 15th June 6pm to 8pm
The Supporter’s Programme is for anyone who is supporting a loved one (spouse, relative, friend etc) who is struggling with their mental health.
The programme teaches supporters practical skills they can use to support their loved ones, it gives information on what supports are available and how they can be accessed and teaches practical ways of looking after your own mental health while supporting someone else.
Participants have said that alongside the practical skills learned, the programme has increased their confidence in their existing support skills, helped them to focus more on self-care, and provided an opportunity for them to connect with others who are in a supporter role, so they feel less alone.
