Training: Meeting the mental health needs of domestic and sexual survivors (OCN London accredited) 3-day training
Time: No time set
Location: Amnesty International UK, London
Domestic and sexual violence and mental ill-health are two issues that often co-exist. For many professionals, addressing both is challenging as routes into mental health services seem blocked. Meeting the mental health needs of domestic and sexual survivors is a FREE three day, OCN London accredited course will provide learners with the opportunity to fully understand the links between experiences of violence, abuse and mental ill-health and consider ways to improve how they work with this group of survivors.
Meeting the mental health needs of domestic and sexual survivors involves five pieces of coursework, four of which are to be completed in the learner’s own time. Learners will have two months to finish all the coursework and it should take no more than six hours in total. Learners will be fully supported to complete each assignment.
This FREE training is offered as part of the ASCENT Project of the London VAWG Consortium, funded by London Councils. Delegates must work in London with women or girls who are at risk of or experiencing violence and abuse. The training is limited to 16 places, with no more than two delegates from each organisation.
Who’s it for?
The course is relevant for any practitioner whose work brings them into contact with survivors of domestic and sexual violence, who may also be affected by mental ill-health. You must work in London.
