Our Voices – Listening, Learning and Leading
MITHN is committed to ensuring that services are accessible and culturally appropriate for the diverse communities in the boroughs we work in. As a part of our on going commitment we have developed our “Our Voices” services which aims to ensure that we reach into “seldom heard” communities which experience challenges, disadvantage and lack of access to Mental Health support and services.
Our Voices – Muslim Women
We have developed a peer led programme in partnership with a local mosque in Redbridge. We work in collaboration with South Asian women through the mosque and have delivered a 8 week programme of mental health awareness workshops, incorporating faith and culture. Our peer group runs weekly and the group coproduce their activities with us. For more information please contact [email protected]
Our Voices Peer Support and Peer Leadership Network
We are continuing to build on our work with Muslim women to create a network of voices in mental health services across Newham, Redbridge and Tower Hamlets. We will support local Muslim women to share and learn from each other about mental health and wellbeing and to coproduce their own faith based wellbeing toolkit. If you are interested in joining our network and you want support the mental health and wellbeing of yourself, your family and the wider community, you can contact us on 0207 510 1081 or email [email protected]
Our Voices – Redbridge
Our Team provide workshops and listening to action events in Redbridge for communities that do not have access to mental health services and need more culturally specific support. We are hosting mindfulness sessions and listening workshops as a part of our programme of access and engagement.
