INFORMATION STALLS SAMH's Let's TALK project can host a free stall that could link in with any event that you're having and promote ways to look after your mental health. Let's TALK would bring a range of materials relating to the topic as well as prompts and even games that are themed around the 5 Ways to Wellbeing.

CONVERSATION CAFES One of the most popular methods to support people around mental wellbeing is through the Conversation cafés we run. These tend to based around general mental health and wellbeing where I would introduce the project and recovery through the 5 Ways to Wellbeing. I would then pose questions to the groups such as; - What is mental health? (hopefully dispelling some of the myths and misconceptions about what mental health is and that we all have it) - What stops people opening up about their mental health? (touching on barriers that stop people speaking out and seeking support) - What are triggers to poor mental health? (highlighting we can be affected by a variety of things and at different times in our lives) - What are the signs and symptoms of mental ill health? (proving it's not 'all in your head') - What do you do to keep yourself well? (reminding people that the 'small' things can have the biggest impact and the role of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing in recovery and self-care) - Where can people go for help? (illustrating the range of people and places that might offer support, not just for mental health but for the underlying causes too) The conversation café is usually a great way to generate discussions and build some rapport in a shorter session (typically 40-60 mins) before then moving on to the workshops which typically last about 90 minutes and topics could be picked by the group at the Conversation Café.

WORKSHOPS Workshops will take the form of interactive sessions that will seek to inform people about how common mental health problems are, potential triggers, early warning signs and positive coping mechanisms. They will seek to build people’s resilience to look after themselves and those around them.
