Getting involved

Our courses that promote ways of getting involved include:



How to organise and chair meetings
(half-day workshop)

It can be quite daunting to be responsible for organising and structuring a meeting. This workshop aims to help give people the confidence to actively participate in running a meeting and to understand the processes that are required to chair them. This is invaluable for people wanting to get involved in organising service user involvement, or for staff wanting to improve their management skills.

Train the trainers
(two-day course with two-week break between days)

Would you like to become a trainer at CNWL Recovery & Wellbeing College? This workshop aims to teach individuals how to effectively deliver courses as a co-facilitator at CNWL Recovery & Wellbeing College. The course incorporates learning theories and expertise on presenting skills. There is an expectation that students will deliver their own micro-teaching session on day two of the workshop. Due to popular demand, a selection process will be undertaken to allocate places.

Training typically takes place in small groups of 15. We acknowledge that our students are all individuals with different needs and we are committed to providing them with the best possible learning experience.

Recovery and user expertise
(one-day workshop)

This introductory course will provide a “back to basics” opportunity for service users, their supporters (family, friends, carers) and CNWL staff to address the question “What do we mean by User Involvement?” and how can this be more effective.

The course has been designed in partnership with the User Focus Monitoring Team (UFM). UFM is a team of service users that monitors and evaluates local mental health services. The course will help students explore how they can work in partnership with others to improve their own individual care and treatment through having more meaningful conversations with carers and staff members. It will also examine how all students can become involved in using their expertise at a strategic level within CNWL Foundation Trust.
