How to be... A Mental Health Advocate

If you want to become an advocate for mental health, this course is for you. You will find all the tools and information you need to discover your voice in the world of mental health advocacy and start thinking about all the ways you can make a difference!
This activity is offered as part of Future Me Week - five days of exciting opportunities to develop your skills, deepen understanding, gain experience and takes steps towards an exciting Future You.

If we want to be advocates for those struggling with their mental health, we must first learn to be advocates for ourselves. This course creates space for you to invest in your own mental health and wellbeing before stepping up to become an advocate for others. You will develop self-awareness, gain confidence and learn new skills so that you are prepared for the ongoing process of mental health advocacy. Together, we can change and challenge how the world views mental health by speaking out, sharing stories and showing others that they are not alone.

Graduate Attributes: Creativity / Resilience / Self-awareness
