The Sally Allan Fund was developed by Tyneside and Northumberland Mind to help reduce stigma and raise awareness of mental health problems to create better mental health in the north east. Its vision is to provide a free one hour presentation with three aims:
- To give people knowledge about common mental health problems so that they feel more self-assured in identifying them in others and starting a conversation about it.
- To provide information so that individuals feel more confident and empowered to speak up about their experiences and to ask for the advice, support and treatment that they need.
- To recognise the importance of self-care for the prevention of mental health problems and to help stop relapses.
In conjunction with the presentation, each attendee receives a booklet full of tips and guidance on self-care and information on local and national services for support.
If your organisation would like to receive this free presentation please contact a member of the training team at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
