Workshops

My Way Code:

a new non-profit mental health programme for young people and adults

to help build emotional resilience, autonomy,

personal responsibility and identity.

Available as workshop with eWorkshops and App in development.

MENTAL HEALTH WORKSHOPS

We provide the My Way Code concept through workshops in

organisations and groups. In just 2 hours we use just 3 of

our core signs to improve insight into:

Awareness of and reactions to thoughts and feelings,

Identifying support they have and who to go to,

Defining life goals and choosing steps towards positive change.

 

We are also designing a digital version for companies and organisations to download and self deliver through videos and workbooks.

This provides a cost effective, easy way to support staff and client's mental health and resilience in house.

WHY?

  • 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem at any one given time - by which we mean people who will need help for their mental health. (Mind, 2016)

 

  • The economic impact of mental health disorders is also very large. Working populations may experience reduced productivity, greater absenteeism and even ”presenteeism” where the person is at the job but not performing at well. (Dr. Shekhar Saxena, 2016)

 

  • Each year, 6,000 people in the UK alone take their own lives. (Mind, 2016)

 

  • Workplace design, culture and environments are also extremely important to maintain the mental health of our workforce. (Dr Vikram Patel, 2016)

 

During our Community Development programme we tested the 3 core tasks and we saw consistently great results with an average of 70% scoring positive distance travelled from before the workshop

My Way Code workshops strive to be fun and informative.

There are no wrong answers -

each person is encouraged to find their own answers.

There's no pressure to share personal information in the group.

We have a Confidentiality Agreement for all workshops - Read it here.

Some of our recent workshop feedback from adults and children:

  • Each workshop lasts 2-3 hours dependent on time you have available. We can come to your venue or arrange a venue for the workshop.*
  • All materials provided. Ideally we need a projector and screen but can deliver without.
  • Groups sizes can vary - please let us know your requirements.
  • Outcomes are measured by short surveys and we will summarise the results for the organisation and any comments** after the workshop.
  • The participants keep their worksheets and only hand in the surveys giving them the opportunity to review and refine.
  • Once the App is released all participants will receive a free licence to continue their My Way Code journey.
