Voluntary Action Camden supports volunteer Mental Health Champions to engage with Camden-based BMER and faith communities.
Key aims of the project are to:
(1) raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing either in the community or in the workplace
(2) tackle stigma by starting conversations about mental health in a non-threatening way (e.g by using simple tools such as the Five Ways to Wellbeing) and
(3) improve access to mental health services so that people receive help in a timely fashion.
Our volunteer Mental Health Champions may be staff or volunteers from community organisations, or individuals interested in improving awareness about mental health.
We are very keen to recruit volunteers or community workers from the Somali community to join the Project.
Contact VAC’s Mental Health Team on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or would like to know more.
