Connecting our Community
Being part of a community can have a positive effect on mental health and emotional wellbeing. Community involvement provides a sense of belonging and social connectedness, and it can also offer extra meaning and purpose to everyday life.
Communities can exist or be created from a shared location, hobbies, commonalities, and backgrounds, or a common cause. For many people, communicating with others – through online forums, social media, or in person – can help them to build mindshare, improve self-worth, and provide a greater enjoyment of life.
Helping to support yourself and others
Mental Health & Wellbeing First Aider Training
Our Mental Health and Wellbeing Courses range from just 1 hour to a full-day and are available to members of the community, including clubs, charities and associations.
Starting at just £10 per person, our courses are founded in evidence-based psychological theory and cognitive behavioural therapy, are specifically designed for the Isle of Man, and are overseen by our Consultant Clinical Psychologist.
By attending one of our courses, you will have an introduction to mental health as well as topics including depression, anxiety, suicide, referral pathways and listening skills and learn to spot the signs that someone might be struggling. You will also gain an understanding of your role boundaries and signposting options so that you are never dealing with a situation beyond your training. Upon completion of the training, you will receive ongoing support from our accredited therapists should it be required.
Isle Listen is a charitable initiative entirely funded through the generous support and donations of the local community. Can you help us?
