MENTAL HEALTH ACTION WORKSHOPS
AND 1 TO 1 COACHING
First Person Project (FPP) provide mental health action support, delivered as 1-to-1 coaching or workshops for groups of up to 20 people.
Using a variety of techniques including coaching, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural, neuro-linguistic programming, critical thinking, action-learning and interpersonal development informed approaches we stimulate critical thinking, allowing participants to develop a better understanding of what mental health means to them.
With this approach, people become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to make positive changes.
We use WEMWBS to measure the mental wellbeing of participants before and after sessions. WEMWBS is a validated and peer-reviewed tool. The desired outcome is to improve the WEMWBS score of participants. In addition to assessing improvement in mental health of participants FPP measure social impact using pre-determined metrics outlined by an in-house social impact matrix.
FPPs unique, innovative, 4-stage approach to mental health support provides a system which allows people to reflect on their own context and the external factors affecting them. FPP’s approach to mental health action is designed to empower people to develop their own solutions for management of mental health, the bespoke solutions will be determined by context of the individual.
During the reflection periods FPP focus on the strengths of the participants and the strengths that exist within their communities. An emphasis is put on asset building, identifying and exploring ways to develop skills, resources, relationships, groups and other intangible assets.
The FPP workshops provide a safe space for participants to think critically about their situation. An environment in which participants can feel confident that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any emotional or physical harm.
Workshops are typically delivered over a 2-day period, with each stage lasting half a day.
