Talk for Health

Talk for Health is a social enterprise improving mental health. It was started in 2008 by Nicky Forsythe, an Accredited Psychotherapist, to teach people an evidence-based method for therapeutic talking. It is as effective as therapy. It teaches groups of people to engage in an effective group therapeutic talk process with each other. In this way, Talk for Health builds both individual and social mental health and wellbeing.

FREE PROGRAMME IN TALKING FOR WELLBEING

WHAT’S THE IDEA?
It’s important to take care of our emotional wellbeing, just as it is to take care of our bodies. One way of doing this is to connect in a truthful and empathic way with others.

WHAT ARE YOUR NEXT STEPS?
Come to a Taster, then you can:

• Come to Talk for Health Ongoing groups; continue talking for wellbeing, gain communication skills and develop strong peer networks.

• Do our in-depth 4-day Talk for Health Programme. It’s all FREE and is commissioned by the NHS. You will learn and have space for:

• Honest talking – being the real you

• Empathic listening • Basic counselling skills

• How to set up and be part of an ongoing group to talk for wellbeing

WHO IS IT FOR?
Anyone in Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge or Waltham Forest who wants better mental health and well-being. This includes members of the public and mental health workers alike
