Along with many other charities we’re supporting World Mental Health Day 2018 #WMHD18.

World Mental Health Day raises awareness of mental health issues around the world to encourage positive conversations on mental health.

To mark the event we are hosting a FREE open day in South London.  This is an opportunity for a wider audience to discover:-

  • who we are as an organisation
  • our charity work and counselling services
  • a brief exploration of mental health, including the most common disorders, the differences between them, and what they look like in reality
  • why it has never been more important to learn about mental health
  • our professional counselling training and the route to becoming an accredited counsellor

This year’s theme for World Mental Health Day set by the World Federation for Mental Health is young people and mental health in a changing world. Through raising awareness, we can help break the stigma attached to ill mental health, by highlighting the causes, facts and solutions.  Every year one adult in four, along with one child in ten, will have a mental health issue.

The day provides an opportunity “for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide”.

The Counselling Foundation offers charitable counselling where we ask clients to contribute what they can reasonably pay towards their weekly counselling sessions. The Foundation also provides BACP approved professional part-time counselling training services ranging from one-day workshops to a full five-year Advance Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling.
