Turning Awareness Into Action
Much of the work carried out under the umbrella of “Mental Health Awareness” helps people reach fundamental levels of knowledge and awareness.
First Person Project’s objective is to “Go Beyond Awareness” and help people move to a state of “Mental Health Action”.
Mental health means something different to each and every person.
It is impossible to educate someone about their own mental health because it is personal and people are unique. What works for one person may not work for another.
First Person Project provides people with the correct tools and guidance needed to allow them to navigate the stages of mental health awareness for themselves.
First Person Project provides a safe space and constructive environment for people to learn how to reflect on their own experiences and personal situations. An environment in which participants can feel confident that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any emotional or physical harm.
Our ultimate goal is to give people confidence and empowerment to develop their own methods for managing mental health.
We help our participants create bespoke action plans that will help them develop their individual and community assets and provide methods to build resilience and maintain positive mental health.
This asset-based community development directly addresses social injustices in the Liverpool City Region and supports the most disadvantaged in the region.
The contextual evaluation of what is strong in communities; then co-creation of action plans to develop the capacity and capability of these communities will improve the welfare of wider groups of people.
As a community interest company 100% of all surplus revenue gets re-invested into the organisation to maximise the social impact of First Person Project's mission.
