We are very excited to be recruiting for new Student Minds 'Positive Minds' peer support group facilitatiors.
Our Positive Minds groups are support groups for student who are experiencing depression or low mood whilst at University. Running for 6 weeks at a time, trained student facilitators will run the peer support group with another facilitator to empower and encourage a healthy discussion around mental health.
We are seeking students who are passionate about changing the face of mental well being at University to help start up the peer support 'Positive Minds' platform. Students must be able to dedicate around 10 hours per term to the project which will include promotion, facilitation, supervision and stand-by shifts for facilitation.
This year, we are also looking for our Positive Minds facilitators to be trained in our new 'Motivate Me' course, which is for students experiencing an unhealthy relationship with food, or those who have disordered eating.
Successful peer support facilitators will receive full training and supervision meetings from the Students Union and be presented with on-going online and face to face training. Training for new Student Minds volunteers is scheduled for:
Thursday14th October (6pm - 9pm)
Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th October (10am - 5pm)
